Two local businessmen with a lifelong commitment to conservation, Jay Jorgensen and Rick Phillips, will be honored as Hidden Heroes of Conservation at Little River Wetlands Project's fifth annual Frogapalooza fundraiser on Friday evening, October 24 at the Fort Wayne Country Club. Tickets are $100 each or $800 for a table of eight. All proceeds from the event help LRWP to care for its almost 1,200 acres of wetland nature preserves and offer its free nature programs that serve thousands of children and adults every year.
Frogapalooza 2014, presented by Brooks Construction, will feature live and silent auction items including getaways to Toronto and Chicago, unique nature experiences, and more. After dinner, guests will learn about how Jorgensen and Phillips have significantly aided the restoration and conservation of natural lands in Indiana.
"Jay and Rick have been long-time friends to Little River and other nonprofits working to restore and protect the natural environment," says Amy Silva, LRWP's executive director. "We are pleased to be able to honor them at our annual fundraiser."
