Los Angeles Zoo Partners with the Lifeline Program for Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
The Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens will partner with The Lifeline
Program to offer a "Lifeline Bucket List Contest" with a holiday,
all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to meet Betty White and
celebrate the holidays with her at the LA Zoo. The Contest is open
to seniors age 64 and above and runs now through Nov. 9, 2012. For
full contest details and entry information, visit: www.facebook.com/LifelineProgram
Betty White, co-chair of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association along with Hollywood’s premier snow effects firm, MagicSnow, will transform areas of the L.A. Zoo into a real-life winter wonderland for the event. Snow will fall from the sky as carolers serenade Betty White and the Lifeline Bucket List Contest winner during their private tour of the Zoo. Along the way, they will view some of Betty’s favorite animals including the gorillas, elephants and koalas.
The contest is open to all legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States (including Washington D.C., but excluding Alaska, Florida, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Texas), where not prohibited by law, who have reached sixty-four (64) years of age at the time they enter the contest, and who have an email address and internet access prior to the start of the contest period. The winner will be announced Nov. 16, 2012.
To participate, submit an essay on the following topic: “Why meeting Betty White is at the top of my holiday Bucket List,” along with a fully and accurately completed contest registration form (“Registration Form”) provided by Lifeline at:
