On Saturday, July 20, the Oregon Zoo Foundation's premiere annual fundraising gala will honor the zoo's past and celebrate its future with a 125th anniversary soiree that won't soon be forgotten.
The tradition of Zoolala continues in 2013 with an enchanting summer evening under the stars featuring animals, music, entertainment and culinary delights from several of the region's signature eateries – all while raising money for zoo's hallmark animal welfare, conservation and education programs.
At Zoolala, you'll have the chance to socialize with friends and associates while you...
- savor delicious fare from local restaurants while enjoying Northwest wine and beer
- marvel at creative performance artists
- get up close with some real party animals
- dance the night away to awesome Northwest party band, Cool-Ade
- try your luck at Monte Carlo-style games, activities and so much more
There will also be plenty of monkey business as some zoo residents make special guest appearances to enjoy delights of their own, accompanied by live narration by wildlife experts. (Featured animals for the evening may include: elephants, orangutans, lions, tigers, raptors, reptiles, mammals and more!)
Don't miss this opportunity to support the zoo's mission to inspire the community to respect animals and to take action on behalf of the natural world!
Reserved tables, VIP tickets and general admission tickets are available.
21 and over only. Cocktail attire suggested. Valid ID required. Event held rain or shine.
