June 11th, 2019

Thank you for your support on June 11 for the 15th annual KSTP-TV 5 Eyewitness News Phone-a-Thon

Como was featured on KSTP-TV all day and community members called in or donated online to help the animals and plants at Como grow and thrive. Midday, Twin Cities Live and evening broadcasts featured new projects and programs that make Como a destination for everyone.

When you sponsor an animal or garden you are supporting Como’s animal and plant care, habitat enhancements and education and conservation programs.

Sponsorship donations of $50 or more will receive a sponsorship package including:  a certificate, fact sheet, photo and an animal plush for an animal sponsorship or conservatory note cards for a garden sponsorship. On the form below you can select not to receive the package and all of your gift will go to support Como.

Sponsorship specials that are featured on the Phone-a-Thon will be available online June 3-16. You can sponsor an animal or garden at anytime online or by phone at 651-487-8229.

Thank you to our anonymous donor who contributed a $10,000 match!
