Zoolala is the Council’s annual fundraising event, attended by emerging and aspiring leaders from across Central Indiana.

This unforgettable event includes music, dancing, fabulous food, fun and philanthropy, all to be held on the Indianapolis Zoo grounds inside the White River Gardens Hulman Riverhouse.

Since 2013 the Indy Zoo Council has hosted this lavish evening as an opportunity for 500-plus young professionals to network and engage in a fun social setting while also supporting the Zoo’s animal conservation efforts. In its five years, Zoolala has raised over $400,000 to fund animal care and programs at the Indianapolis Zoo.
