Zoofari 2017

Join us for some monkey business!  The Gladys Porter Zoo invites you to the biggest fundraiser of the year, Zoofari 2017 on Saturday, October 7th from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.  Swing your way over to the jungle and support the Zoo while enjoying great food, auctions and music.  Every bid supports the Zoo: Proceeds from Zoofari will go towards the creation of new dynamic exhibits and supports our mission for education, conservation and research. Zoofari 2017 is your chance to enjoy scrumptious food, live music and auctions, while supporting a worthy cause.


Zoofari 2017 will kick off at 6:00 p.m. with the cocktail reception and silent auction, during which guests can sip on a cocktail while they preview and bid on auction items. Dinner, catered by Nena Siller, will begin at 7:00 p.m. with wine courtesy of Jones Liquor. The live auction, beginning at 8:15 p.m., will include various unique treasures including a life-size handcrafted longhorn BBQ pit, autographed JJ Watt and Dak Prescott football jerseys, a trip to Africa and more!
