Thank you to everyone who supported the 18th annual Zoo Rendezvous. This year, we welcomed nearly 1400 guests who enjoyed local fare from 33 area restaurants. Two live bands, African drummers, acrobatic performers, stilt walkers, and antique bicyclists provided entertainment on three stages and throughout the Zoo. Our Zoo animals added their own forms of entertainment to the delight of the crowd. New this year was the introduction of mobile bidding to allow our guests to bid on more than 200 silent auction items right from their smart phones. This resulted in the most successful silent auction to date.

Every penny from our ticket sales, sponsor packages, and silent auction winners will directly support the Zoo’s animal care and conservation programs. This would not be possible without our generous sponsors. We are also very grateful to our restaurant partners, entertainment partners, silent auction donors, volunteers, UHZ staff and our dedicated planning committee.

Again, many thanks to everyone who attended supported and volunteered to make Conservation Crusade…Full Steam Ahead, such a wonderful and successful event.

See you next year, Thursday, September 8, 2016 when we will present our 19th annual Zoo Rendezvous.

Save the Date for the next Wildest Party In Town!
