For more than 45 years, Zoo Friends of Houston has dedicated countless hours to raising funds to support the Houston Zoo. Zoo Ball 2013 was held April 19 and successfully celebrated the Zoo and golf with the theme “Caddyshack Gone Wild.” Co-Chairs Debbie Chenevert, Anne Freeman, and Amy Reeves were pleased to honor Bobbie and John Nau for all they have done for the Zoo over the years. The Ball was a fun evening full of golf games, an amazing auction, and fabulous fare. And Zoo Friends Lifetime Member Jane Block was the night’s dancing diva. The Houston Zoo family extends big THANKS to the co-chairs, Zoo Friends President Jackie Sharbrough, and all who helped in planning another spectacular Zoo Ball.

Proceeds from the 2013 Zoo Ball, Caddyshack Gone Wild, help support the education and conservation programs of the Houston Zoo. Each year, over 90,000 schoolchildren go on a worldwide learning safari at the Houston Zoo without ever leaving the city. The ability to see over 6,000 animal residents in natural habitats encourages our children to have an appreciation of the world’s diverse ecosystems and many wild inhabitants.
This year, Zoo Friends of Houston is especially thrilled to recognize Bobbie Nau and John Nau as Honorary Chairs for the 2013 Zoo Ball. The Naus have demonstrated extraordinary leadership in support of the Zoo’s annual operating and capital campaign goals and continue to be a guiding force in the Zoo’s conservation efforts.
Please join Zoo Friends of Houston in ensuring that the Zoo continues to remain a place of joy and discovery for this community.
