SAVE THE FROGS! Frog Art Fundraiser in Santa Cruz
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
You are invited to the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Art Fundraiser, which will feature over 250 pieces of the greatest frog art ever created! The Art Fundraiser will take place at Art du Jour in downtown Santa Cruz September 7th, 2012 from 5pm-9pm. We will be auctioning off amazing frog art from around the world to raise funds for our amphibian conservation efforts. Former Mayor of Santa Cruz Mike Rotkin will be in attendance as the Guest of Honor.
Most of the art was submitted to us through the first three years of our SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest, which last year received over 2,231 entries from 31 countries. What you'll be seeing is the best of the best! This event will be fun and educational, so please bring some friends and help us out by spreading the word. And please support our work by buying your favorite piece of frog art at the event!
Please reserve your spot in advance, thanks!

SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest is underway
Amphibian populations worldwide are in the midst of a mass extinction crisis, yet most people are completely unaware! We need your help in getting the word out: we encourage all nature lovers to seek out their inner frog artist and participate in the SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest, which runs each year from January 15 to October 15! Your submissions make fundraisers like this possible!
Thanks to Santa Cruz High School art student Hannah Atkinson for her help judging and processing the thousands of pieces of frog art we receive. Thanks also to SAVE THE FROGS! Board member Tai Stills for her help setting up this event and framing all the art!
You can't attend but still want to support our efforts?
We need your financial assistance to put on this event, which will educate a lot of people about frogs, and help us raise crucial funds for amphibian conservation. Help us reach our goal of $5,000 raised through this event. Every bit helps. Thanks!
See you September 7th!
Thanks for all your support,
Dr. Kerry Kriger
