Leave Your Mark
You can “leave your mark” by purchasing and decorating a flag that will be displayed at the zoo! All proceeds go towards helping the zoo achieve and further its mission!

Prairie Dog Bucket Raffle
This year we’re trying a new approach and doing a bucket raffle rather than a silent auction. There will be over 50 baskets to take a chance on and win!

Live Auction
To top it off there will be several unique experiences auctioned live throughout the evening.
