The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo held its annual Zoobilee Gala on Sept. 28, 2023. This year's theme was "Toast to the Coast" and guests got a sneak peek of the exciting renovation planned for the Zoo's beloved sea lion exhibit. A sold-out crowd of over 300 guests was in attendance and the event grossed over $350,000. A hallmark of Zoobilee is its unique, live auction items, which feature experiences you can't purchase anywhere else. A few lucky winners will enjoy private gourmet dinners or cocktail parties at the reef aquarium, red panda ridge and more.
