MONTGOMERY, Ala., Oct 16, 2007 – On October 11, 2007, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, LLC (HMMA) donated $15,000 to the Montgomery Zoological Society for the society’s Zoobilation 2007 – Zoofari Night event. This year, Zoofari Night was held to benefit the Zoo’s new North American River Otter Habitat that is currently under construction.
“We consider it an honor to be a part of Zoobilation 2007,” said Rick Neal, vice president – legal at HMMA. “The Montgomery Zoo has long been a family gathering place for citizens of the River Region and we are proud to be able to support the Zoo’s efforts to bring new and interesting exhibits for daily visitors and teachers seeking to expand the knowledge of their students.”
