SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Samantha Lawless drew more than 100 people and raised more than $1,000 at her recent " Save the Tiger " fashion show at The Center@862. But she isn't stopping there.
The Scarsdale 12-year-old will host another Save the Tiger event Saturday at the Greenburgh Nature Center. Kids will learn about tigers and why their numbers are dwindling through a mini-tiger habitat. The event is part of Global Youth Service Day ,
Younger kids can color tiger pictures and feed animals beginning at 2 p.m. Adults will also learn what they can do locally to help preserve the tiger population.
Like Lawless' fashion show, this event is sponsored by Disney Friends for Change and Youth Service of America.
All proceeds from the "Save the Tiger" fashion show will benefit Panthera, a conservation group working worldwide to save big cats such as the tiger from extinction. The World Wildlife Fund has classified the tiger as an endangered species and estimate about 3,200 are left in the world.
The Greenburgh Nature Center is on 99 Dromore Road in Scarsdale.
