Our 14th annual Zoolala was a huge success thanks to all of our guests, sponsors, donors and volunteers. More than 800 attendees enjoyed delicious food, drinks, music and magic under the moonlight in celebration of the zoo’s 125th anniversary. The Oregon Zoo Foundation is pleased to announce that the event garnered more than $260,000 in support of the zoo's conservation, education and animal welfare efforts.
