Zoobilee, The Zoo Society’s annual grand gala in support of Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, is just over the horizon on July 22. Tickets for the big dinner and auction always go quickly.

For the second year in a row, the Twilight Stroll will expand the number of Zoo supporters who can participate in the evening’s festivities. You can eat, drink and dance under the stars from 9 p.m. to midnight—all for just $75 per person. Guests will enjoy activities in and around the Main Plaza area, at the Carousel and on down to Kids’ Zone.

The theme, Octopus’ Garden, will feature colorful ocean décor.

This year, the fund-raising spotlight is on the Dr. Holly Reed Wildlife Conservation Fund.

“The Zoo has a well-deserved reputation as a conservation leader and a powerful voice for saving wildlife,” Zoo Society Executive Director Larry Norvell said. “Money raised at Zoobilee will play a critical role in continuing that work.”
