“This year’s ticket includes a $10 voucher,” says Gail Kudlac, festival committee chair. “Vouchers can be used at any food or vendor booth. You can also put it in one of the containers on the winery, brewery, cider, or distillery tables, and it will go towards a donation to the zoo. Each beverage table will have a different animal on their container. Which one will bring in the most donations?”
