Did you know that the Phoenix Zoo is one of the largest non-profit, privately funded zoos in the country? In order to keep this pristine title, the zoo needs your support. But don’t worry, there’s fun involved and it’s not too late to grab a ticket to ZooFari, happening THIS FRIDAY NIGHT! Let me tell you, I attend this event almost every year and it’s one of my favorites because it involves animals, fundraising, and dressing up! Woot Woot!
ZooFari is a fun-filled night of delicious cuisine and delectable beverages that you can enjoy as you stroll the lit up zoo pathways. Word of advice: this is not the event to rock your brand new pair of Loubs. Think along the line of wedges or fancy sandals. I go with flats because #wine. This signature event features food and wine options along with other delectable offerings from many of the valley’s top restaurants including Cien Agave, Elements at Sanctuary, Frost Gelato, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Press Coffee, Ruths Chris, and Unbaked. There will also be a “Stock the Bar” and “Wine” pull so you cal leave with your own boozy souvenir and since drinking and driving is super UNCOOL use these codes for LYFT.
ZOOFARI – Good for new Lyft users to receive $5 off their first 4 rides
ZOOFARI19 – Good for existing Lyft users to receive 10% off their rides to and from ZooFari on October 4
The event will benefit the Zoo’s world-class conservation initiatives, educational offerings, school and family activities, and statewide outreach programs. So get ready to go wild for a great cause! And did I mention the tropical theme and palm tree inspired cocktail attire is a thing?
So what are the details? Glad you asked. The tropical fundraiser will take place on the grounds of the Phoenix Zoo, October 4th from 6:00-10:30 p.m. and is for adults 21 and over, so leave the little monkeys at home- there will be plenty of the real deal at the party. Perhaps the most important aspect of the night (next to raising tons of dough for the animals) is the 2019 ZOOFARI SIGNATURE DRINK: a 3 AMIGOS TEQUILA MARGARITA
