Each year the Zoobilation Ball is THE primary fundraiser for the zoo’s $25 million operating budget, and YOUR support is more critical now than it has been in our entire 106-year history.
The Zoo’s decrease in daily visitors and our extended closure has created a multimillion-dollar financial loss. Still, the animals rely on us daily and will continue to be cared for at the highest level. Your support of the 38th Annual Zoobilation Ball helps our zoo continue to fulfill our commitment of securing a future for wildlife.
