Enjoy these scenes from last years gala evening at the Zoo and plan now to attend this year's event on August 25, 2012!

The Friends of the Santa Ana Zoo are proud to present our 2012 "Zoofari" Gala "The Cat's Meow"

Zoofari is the signature annual fundraiser for the Santa Ana Zoo, and is one of the best parties of the year.
Dine and dance under the stars at one of the most unique venues in all of Orange County. Barbara Venezia and Frank Mickadeit will be co-hosting this fabulous event.

Begin your evening's adventure by entering to a whole themed world inside the Zoo. This year, it's "The Cat's Meow", a throwback to the prohibition era, and the speakeasy is now open.
Sip a signature cocktail and nosh on hors d' ouvres during the cocktail hour as you explore the Zoo and mingle with friends. Check out the fantastic array of items in the silent auction, and then be seated for a sumptuous and decadent dinner from Parties by Panache. The live auction boasts several treasures for you choose from to take home with you, and then it's time for dancing the night away to the music of Soundbytes. The hosted bar is available all evening, and the Zoo will be open for you to go exploring.

This gala event is Black Tie, combined with what we like to call "Safari Chic" or 1920's attire. Come monkey around with us for an evening of good people, great food, and lots of fun! This is a great way to support animals and the Zoo, and our important mission of Conservation and Education.

This gala is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Santa Ana Zoo, a 501(c)3 non-profit.
The proceeds from this event will go towards an amazing new interactive Ocelot jungle cat exhibit, the "Wild Cats of El Bosque Verde" (Wild Cats of the Green Forest).
Funds raised this night will also be used for animal enrichments, new animals and exhibits, educational programs and materials, and other Zoo improvements.

Come join us for a "wild" evening at the Santa Ana Zoo, and help us bring Brazilian Ocelots to Santa Ana and make this unique new exhibit possible.
