What to Expect

This isn’t your typical gala… We’re 50 and Still Wild!

We’ve designed this celebration to bring together our most passionate supporters for an elegant cocktail hour, an inspiring storytelling program, and plenty of time to mingle over a delicious menu of foods inspired by the native habitats of our pack.

Throughout the event, we’ll honor our legacy and provide opportunities to continue supporting the future of endangered wolves.


Interested in Sponsoring Our Celebration?

Founded with a sense of urgency to save endangered wolves in the 1970s by world-renowned zoologist and beloved “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” host Marlin Perkins and his wife, Carol, the EWC leads the pack in endangered wolf recovery.

We invite you to join us and honor this notable milestone at the Endangered Wolf Center’s 50 and Still Wild Anniversary Celebration on September 10, 2022. We’re hosting this wildly elegant event at the Saint Louis Zoo, one of our revered pillar partners.

All proceeds will benefit endangered wolves by helping us to preserve these top predators in the American landscape by blending wolf conservation, behavioral and biological research, and public engagement.

The success of this event depends on the sponsors who help make it possible. We’ve designed eight sponsorship packages to honor, highlight, and provide one-of-a-kind experiences for those that give at any level.
