On Tuesday, April 12th, 2011, the touring company of the Broadway play Jersey Boys that was in town performing at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts visited Big Cat Rescue, the world’s largest accredited sanctuary dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of exotic cats.
Jersey Boys is a Grammy/Tony award-winning musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. The cast and production company of Jersey Boys have a longstanding reputation for supporting non-profit organizations around the world.
So in a perfect confluence of themes, the touring company currently in Tampa visited Big Cat Rescue in support of the 100+ magnificent animals that call the sanctuary home.
“We were very excited in having had the opportunity to partner together with the cast and crew of Jersey Boys” said Jeff Kremer, Director of Donor Appreciation with the nonprofit sanctuary. “It was truly inspiring to spend time with this group of talented and like-minded individuals that share in the sanctuary's vision of seeking to make a positive difference in both the animal as well as human world that we share in.”
