On Thursday, May 17, over 100 of the D.C. area's top restaurants will descend upon Smithsonian's National Zoo, bringing delicious food and cocktails to taste.
 
But it's more than just food - it's animal encounters, live entertainment, and, of course, our silent auction! Last year's auction was a huge success but this year we want to go bigger. 

We would be delighted if you donated to our auction!
 
ZooFari is Friends of the National Zoo's biggest fundraising event of the year. We're dedicated to supporting the critical conservation work that's happening here and around the globe - and ZooFari is an important part of our support. 
 
By making a tax-deductible donation to our auction, you can help us raise these critical funds.
 
 
Thank you once again for your support, and we hope to see you at ZooFari!
