All of the food donations collected at the wildlife park’s Main Gate during November will benefit the Emergency Food Network, a Pierce County-based nonprofit.

ENTER TO WIN – And for a little bit of fun, Northwest Trek is going away THREE Family 4-packs for admission to Northwest Trek. We will select THREE winners – each receiving one Family 4-pack (valued at $79 each). Valid for any four tickets (adult or kid) to be used before December 31, 2015.

TO ENTER . . . . Leave a comment on this post. Any comment will do, but I’d love to hear what your favorite animal(s) is at Northwest Trek! One comment per person. Don’t cheat or you’ll totally be disqualified. Make sure your email is entered correctly – because that’s how I’ll contact the winner.

Giveaway ends November 21 at 6 p.m. PST at which time I will select THREE winners randomly (using a giveaway software that auto picks a winner randomly).  I will email the winners for mailing information and ticket packs will be mailed to winners by Northwest Trek the week of November 22.

Good luck!

Sponsored giveaway :: Northwest Trek is providing these family 4-packs. I am not compensated at all for this post and all content and opinions are mine.
