San Diego Herpetological Society to host a fundraiser w/ speakers, silent auction, and more!

I just got an email from the San Diego Herpetological Society about their upcoming fundraising event that will kick off this Sunday August 1, 2010.  All proceeds will benefit many animals (including my favorite - Sea Turtles!) that have been effected by the Gulf Oil Spill. The event is extremely inexpensive to attend - lunch is provided by Trupianos, an awesome key note speaker, kids art events AND there will be great opportunities to win several awesome prizes at their silent auction!
