SCI-Calgary Partners With Zoo

Archie Nesbitt, president of Calgary Chapter in Canada (right), is shown with Clement Lanthier, president & CEO of the Calgary Zoo, who donated, a priceless behind-the-scenes experience for six people to take the Penguin Plunge. “This is truly a unique and intimate experience,” explained Lanthier as he addressed the Calgary SCI Chapter’s 17th Annual Fundraiser. He also explained that the unique relationship between the Calgary Zoo and SCI makes perfect sense as they are both very conservation-minded organizations and can accomplish great things when they work together. The 100 percent donation sold at auction for $1,600 and Lanthier was so pleased that he offered a second donation to the back-bidder that again sold for $1,600!
