The Zoo’s Signature Fundraising Event!

This year’s Zoobilee took place on SATURDAY, JULY 9 FROM 5 TO 10 P.M.  Thank you to everyone who attended, bid on auction items, donated auction items, promoted the event, and sponsored the event!  This night could not have been a success without all of you. Thanks for your support of Your Topeka Zoo!

Event Description: As guests stroll through the zoo and JOURNEY INTO THE WILD, they will experience the Zoo’s enthusiasm for the rainforests of the Amazon and conservation, one of the Zoo’s key missions. Unique conservation and green-themed activities are sure to broaden their knowledge about how we can work together to change the world!

While on their journey around the zoo, guests can partake in ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME ANIMAL EXPERIENCES, like giraffe feedings and behind-the-scenes tours, SOOTHING MUSIC to accent the evening, and BRAZILIAN CUISINE in line with the event’s “Green” rainforest theme. Personal interactions with zookeepers and staff who care for a variety of animals, which call YOUR Topeka Zoo home, are sure to be an enlightening experience as well.

GRAZING STATIONS will feature appetizers and entrées guaranteed to tempt their taste buds while WATERING HOLES will let them savor the evening with wine, beer, signature cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages. Event goers can also indulge with a little something to delight any sweet tooth at the DESSERT STATIONS. Assorted auction tables will be situated throughout the zoo where guests can bid the night away on one-of-a-kind experiences.

At this year’s event, not only will guests learn more about conservation, but they’ll have a lot of fun doing it, ALL FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR TOPEKA ZOO! Zoobilee is sure to provide one of the most unique and pleasurable experiences guests could hope for.

Proceeds from this signature fundraising event will support educational programming, conservation efforts, exhibit enhancements and more!
