Thanks for an unforgettable evening!
G'day mates! Zoobilation 2015 was a rip snorter of a bash brought to you by our cobbers at Indianapolis Power & Light Company! Thanks to everyone who came out to party with us in Aussie style and celebrate the return of our koalas. This 29th annual event was another huge success!
Zoobilation is the largest black-tie fundraiser in Indiana and is held annually on the second Friday in June. The Zoo will be closed to the public that day in preparation for this unforgettable evening. Proceeds will support the Zoo's ongoing conservation efforts around the globe and close to home. While exploring the wild diversity of the Indianapolis Zoo landscape, be sure to:
The Premium Experience offers guests the first opportunity to sample all the indulgences Zoobilation has to offer. From 5:30-7pm, Premium Experience guests will receive exclusive benefits, including priority parking, an arrival gift, full access to the air-conditioned Oasis Lounge in the Dolphin Gallery, early access to restaurant booths and more!
The money raised by Zoobilation helps the Indianapolis Zoo care for and feed the 1,600 animals and 23,000 plants in our collection, as well as to support our global conservation initiatives. Contributions also propel many diverse and far-reaching education efforts.
Sponsorship opportunities are now available. For more info, please contact Liz Mok at email@example.com.

Zoobilation 2015 is an event 29 years in the making. The very first Zoobilation was held in 1986 at the home of Herb Simon, where just a few hundred lucky guests gathered to support the Indianapolis Zoo and celebrate its good work. In the past quarter-century, the event has ballooned in attendance and prominence. In 2014, more than 5,000 guests raised a record $2.1 million to help advance animal and environmental conservation efforts globally and locally. [close]
