Vote for Ms. (Mr.) TUSKany 2017 


Which PAWS elephant will win the title of "Ms./Mr. TUSKany" at this year's Elephant Grape Stomp FUNdraiser?

The highlight of PAWS' annual Elephant Grape Stomp, An Afternoon is TUSKany, is always the Ms./Mr. TUSKany contest where you get to vote for your favorite elephant, with the winner being "crowned" Ms. or Mr. TUSKany. The "crown" is actually a beautiful edible bouquet made of favorite elephant foods, and first and second runners-up get a tasty bouquet as well. (The other elephants each get a special treat later that day.) Previous winners have included Lulu, Maggie and the late Wanda, with Maggie the toughest contender, winning three times. In 2014, for the first time, a bull elephant was "crowned" Mr. TUSKany. Fans of Nicholas purchased the most "votes", with one donor "spiking" the ballot box right before the final count was tallied. Needless to say, all the guys attending the Grape Stomp were elated!

It all comes down to the number of votes each elephant receives. Votes cost $5 each. You can purchase them at the time your buy your ticket, or, if you cannot attend this year's Elephant Grape Stomp but would still like to vote, use the link at the bottom of this page.

All proceeds from this FUNdraiser benefit the elephants living at PAWS' ARK 2000 wildlife sanctuary in San Andreas, California.

Thank you!

(The winner will be announced at 2 p.m. during the Elephant Grape Stomp event at ARK 2000.)
