SANTA BARBARA ZOO | SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA
Paradise awaits you at this retro-inspired party straight out of the South Seas. Wear your finest Hawaiian shirt or kitschy getup to chill out under the palm trees and enjoy an icy cold cocktail–garnished with a paper umbrella, of course. Balmy ocean breezes blow as you appease the gods by bidding on exotic silent auction items, then partake of a scrumptious buffet worthy of Don the Beachcomber. Dance the night away amid your fellow revelers under a tropical moon. For guests 21+ only.
A fundraiser benefiting your Zoo and your planet.
Zoofari Ball is sold out. If you are interested in being added to the wait list, please contact Katy Cutaran at (805) 679-8448.
