The Event

Each year, Zoo Ball raises critical funds supporting the Houston Zoo’s animal care, education, and wildlife conservation efforts. Join us at Zoo Ball 2020 for an unforgettable evening. The event will begin with cocktails and mingling with ambassador animals. You’ll browse the exciting auction items and experiences. Following dinner, the After Party will keep us on the dance floor late into the night!

Honoring Jane Block

In addition to raising funds supporting the Zoo’s wildlife-saving mission, Zoo Ball presents an opportunity to recognize those who have led our Zoo’s transformation. During her decades of volunteer leadership, Jane has helped our Zoo improve and flourish in ways too numerous to count. We’re thrilled to honor Jane and all of her accomplishments at Zoo Ball 2020.
