Zoo Brew ends six-year run

February 21, 2013 - 1:46pm

The Oregon Zoo Foundation will discontinue hosting Zoo Brew, starting in 2013.

The Foundation is incredibly grateful to everyone who was involved in helping make Zoo Brew successful over the last six years – from the fabulous attendees to zoo volunteers and staff to the vendors whose generous donations made it possible. Unfortunately, while support was strong for this beloved community event, upcoming construction will significantly limit the space available to host Zoo Brew. In addition, this fundraising event continued to see a reduced financial return for the Foundation that worked against our goal of providing financial support to the zoo's animal welfare, education and conservation programs.

The Oregon Zoo Foundation will continue to focus its energy on projects and events that maximize financial support for the zoo. Thank you for your understanding and please stay tuned for new opportunities and fundraising events offered through the Oregon Zoo Foundation.
