Donate to Zoofari

Each year at Zoofari, we sell “Zooloons” during the Cocktail Reception portion of the event. Zooloons are $100 restaurant gift certificates attached to a large mylar balloon shaped like an animal—an extremely popular and very fun way to raise money at Zoofari! In order to make our goal this year, we are asking you to consider donating a restaurant gift certificate in the amount of $100. To make it as easy as possible the Zoo staff can also purchase the gift certificate on your behalf.

All donations are tax-deductible!

Please contact Christina Anderson at 513.487.3318 or Christina.a@cincinnatizoo.org

Behind the glamour of the animal kingdom grows a lush backdrop of botanical wonders. Branches, roots and blossoms intertwine to provide a natural habitat that nourishes, protects and beautifies the wild animals hidden within. At the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, these habitats are thoughtfully, artfully constructed, providing both refuge for our animals and exploration for our visitors.

This year, on September 16, we invite you to celebrate this legacy with us at Zoofari 2016: A Botanical Dream. Zoofari is the Zoo’s premiere party with a purpose – complete with delightful libations, dinner-by-the-bite from 60 remarkable restaurant, wild animal encounters, an extraordinary silent auction and  “GiRaffle,”high-energy entertainment and dancing under the stars. Foliage from many climates, both towering and delicate, will be punctuated by moody, evocative illuminations to create a stunningly  saturated, expressive canopy under which you will dine, relax and unwind. Join 2500+ corporate leaders, zoo supporters, and philanthropists for a fashionably fabulous evening.
