Community Events: Zoobilee

Scorpions! Pythons! Auction! Rock Songs! What more could the 2,200 guests of the 20th anniversary Zoobilee night of entertainment ask for? The evening was packed with performances on six stages, amazing food and some special guests. Eighteen different animals and their zookeepers took center stage at the event. Over half a million was raised during the festivities and the event Chairperson, Dr. Richard Cockrell, took the stage by storm singing AC/DC, “You Shook Me All Night Long”. The funds raised benefited the Point Defiance Zoo Foundation.
