Fundraising Website a Success for Utah’s Hogle Zoo

Website Built by MWI Includes Registration System and Content Management System.

Salt Lake City, UT – Utah’s Hogle Zoo used MWI’s online registration system and content management system to manage registrations for their yearly fundraiser and gala event, Zoo Rendezvous. Sponsored by American Express, 100% of the funds raised through the event are dedicated to animal care and improvement of exhibits.

The system allows users to purchase various ticket packages as well as learn more about the details of the event. This is the second year in a row that Utah’s Hogle Zoo has used MWI’s system. In order to match this year’s Asian Highlands theme the website was completely redesigned.

This year was the most successful Zoo Rendezvous yet, with more funds collected than ever before as well as hundreds more attendees than at any previous Zoo Rendezvous. The site is located at www.hoglezoo.com.
