Lionesses for Wildness Happy Hour

L4W Happy Hour event is being organized for the next summer solstice in Bethesda, Maryland.

Last summer Lionesses for Wildness held a L4W Happy Hour in Georgetown. It was a hot, sultry, and windy evening a top of The Graham Hotel. All who attended enjoyed happy hour beverage specials mixed especially for us: Simba, Duma and Chui, delectable wildcat treats, while listening to the sweet sounds of Africa and watching an amazing summer solstice sunset.
