The Oakland Zoo is Reopening with a Virtual Celebration and Fundraiser, LollapaZOOla!

This makes me so happy.  I have so many great memories from my childhood of being at the Oakland Zoo.  A few weeks ago we thought the zoo might have to close for good.  Well, thankfully they’re back!  This Saturday they’re hosting a virtual reopening celebration and fundraiser.

Get ready for a wild night – it’s LollapaZOOla, a virtual reopening celebration, and fundraiser, hosted by our very own Michelle Myers. We received $500,000 from a generous anonymous donor, and with your help, we’re aiming to raise $500,000 more! Gather your family to party with amazing guests like Oakland Zoo’s CEO Dr. Parrott, meet our keepers, access behind-the-scenes experiences with our newest animals and animal ambassadors, and dance to music from @dirtycello & Steel Jams. Plus, bid on exclusive silent auction items starting July 20, and on the night of LollapaZOOla bid on special live auction items, and contribute to our Animal Care Fund, supporting our animal family, keepers, and veterinarians.
