The animals at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens received a dose of culture along with their daily feeding on Nov. 3 during the Wild Reading Safari. The benefit for Episcopal Children’s Services included a pride of Jacksonville celebrities who volunteered to read a variety of classic children’s stories.
Philanthropist and Ortega resident Betsy Lovett dressed in character for her reading of “Fancy Nancy” while dancers from The Performers Academy brought the story to life. Duval County School Board member Tommy Hazouri posed with one of the Fancy Nancy dancers after he read “The Giving Tree” of which Hazouri noted, “This is a sad, but good, story to read to the kids.” Also at the Wild Florida stage was Ortega Farms resident Dr. Laura Bailet, executive director of Nemours BrightStart!, who read “Miss Spider’s Tea Party.”
