Join us on April 24 for cocktails, silent and live auctions, dinner, and dancing! ZooFest chairs Elizabeth and Stephen Revetria invite you to the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens’ signature annual event, a gala evening of dining and dancing on the Zoo grounds, where the Zoo community’s most loyal patrons gather together to support the our programs. The ZooFest 2015 theme is “Celebrating Champions,” with a focus on the intersection of animal and human wellness and the importance of physical activity for all. The event will honor the San Francisco Giants for their role as community champions on both a local and national level. Together, they will celebrate the unique and innovative wellness work the Zoo conducts every day for its animal residents and human visitors.
