For the first time, UTEP Athletics’ annual Orange Fever Fiesta fundraising event will be held at the El Paso Zoo.
The event returns on Saturday, May 30, with all proceeds supporting Miner student-athlete scholarships.
“Orange Fever Fiesta returns bigger and better than ever in the most exotic of locations, the El Paso Zoo,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said. “This is always a wonderful event for a tremendous cause, to raise monies for student-athlete scholarships. I invite all Miner fans to join me, our head coaches and staff and kick off the Summer with this exciting adventure.”
The evening gets underway at 6 p.m., and this year’s event will feature casino tables. Attendees will enjoy an array of delicious food and beverage options, live music, and the opportunity to bid on numerous rare live and silent auction items.
The El Paso Zoo, located at 4001 East Paisano Drive, is an expansive 35-acre green space that is home to animals from around the world and features family attractions such as the African Star Train, the Hunt Family Splash Pad, Foster Tree House Playground, and the Hunt Endangered Species Carousel.
Individual tickets to Orange Fever Fiesta are $125, and tables of 10 are available for $1,125. Sponsorship opportunities and packages are also available.
