The Wildest Party of the Year
Guests are guaranteed a roaring good time at Zoobilee
Each and every year, there’s a big party at the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens. It’s the annual Zoobilee, a can’t-miss event to be held at 7 p.m. on February 8.
Nearly 1,000 guests will enjoy a mouth-watering array of sweet and savory culinary delights, along with drinks—courtesy of 25 of the finest restaurants and caterers in Southwest Florida, such as Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, the restaurants of the Seminole Casino Hotel and Wynn’s Catering. (Tickets start at $100. Zoo members receive a discounted price. Must be 21 to attend.)
This special evening also includes live music and close-up animal encounters with everything from birds to snakes to sloths. Plus, guests get a chance to explore the Caribbean Gardens, botanical gardens with a rich
history that began 95 years ago.
Those who are interested in getting a chance to join Naples Zoo on safari can purchase raffle tickets. The safari includes a trip for two to Tanzania. Only 300 raffle tickets will be sold. The winner need not be present at Zoobilee to win or purchase tickets. Raffle tickets start at $100 and can be purchased online. (See website for detail.)
While Zoobilee is a big party, the fun is all in support of a good cause.
“All proceeds from the event support Naples Zoo’s operations, education programs and conservation initiatives locally and around the world,” explains Courtney Jolly Goff, director of marketing and public relations. The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is a nonprofit 501c (3).
