Zoo Ball

Celebrate The Enchantment of Sea Life

The Houston Zoo is the place to be this spring when we explore the limitless wonders of Earth’s oceans at the annual Zoo Ball!

Zoo Ball 2017 will celebrate The Enchantment of Sea Life while raising valuable support for the mission of the Houston Zoo. This annual affair is a springtime celebration like no other. The black-tie evening will feature animal ambassadors, live and silent auctions, a seated dinner, and dancing to the tunes of IDT Band.
