The ZooFari Auction closed at 9:00 pm on May 18th.
ZooFari is the largest and longest-running food and drink tasting event in the area—and its size doesn’t end at the food tables. This year’s silent auction is bigger than ever, featuring everything from exotic vacation packages, to theatre tickets, to behind-the-scenes animal tours here at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo.
And if you win one (or more!) of the auction items, you’ll be able to celebrate more than just your prize. ZooFari is Friends of the National Zoo’s largest fundraising event of the year, and the generous contributions you make will help the Zoo, FONZ, and Smithsonian scientists around the world in our shared mission to save species.
The online auction will open at 10 a.m. on May 4. In the meantime, please take a look at some of this year’s exciting auction items!
And don’t forget to join us on the evening of May 18 for ZooFari: Dine for Wildlife, where you can taste food, cocktails, and wine from more than 100 of D.C.’s top restaurants, all while taking in fantastic live entertainment, getting up close and personal with animals during exclusive encounters, and more.
