'Sex and the City' Co-Star Kristin Davis Hosts Memphis Premiere of Elephant Documentary
Actress, philanthropist, and producer Kristin Davis will be in Memphis April 16 for a screening of her documentary “Gardeners of Eden.”
Davis, known for her role as Charlotte York in “Sex and the City,” is an environmental activist involved in the effort to save African elephants from extinction.
The screening, hosted by Malco Theatres and 4Memphis, will be a red carpet event at the Malco Paradiso.
General admission tickets are $30 and include the screening, a Q & A with Davis, a silent auction and a cocktail reception. VIP reception tickets are available for $500 and are limited. They include a champagne and hors d'oeuvres reception with Kristin Davis prior to the screening, advanced seating and an elephant adoption package.
Proceeds benefit the U.S. Friends of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a Kenyan wildlife conservation charity.
Set against the backdrop of the illegal ivory trade, the documentary reveals what is happening to elephants and the efforts being made to save them. From pilots to elephant keepers, anti-poaching rangers to mobile veterinarians, and Dame Daphne Sheldrick to Kristin Davis, the documentary shows the incredible and frequently high risk efforts taken to save the species. This film has a significant role to play in helping to inform, educate and drive greater global action for the protection of the elephant, one of the world's most iconic and intelligent species.
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was founded by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick in Kenya in 1977 in memory of her late husband David Sheldrick, the naturalist and founder warden of Kenya’s Tsavo National Park. Today, it is the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organizations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. The DSWT has successfully rescued, hand raised and rehabilitated more than 180 elephant orphans before reintegrating them into the wild. Visit SheldrickWildlifeTrust.org for more information.
