Feast with the Beasts raises money for Zoo Miami (includes video story)

Feast with the Beasts, the annual fundraising event for Zoo Miami, took place March 1. Guests were able to enjoy an exclusive after-hours exploration of the zoo while indulging in culinary delights from top South Florida restaurants.

The event had visually appealing lights displayed all over the area. There was also music for the guests. And the zoo brought out animals including the Florida panthers, the black bears, the cheetah and a new tiger cub.

“It’s the biggest fundraising event for the zoo and it’s really just a great party,” said director of communications Ron Magill.

And with new projects coming up like a new hospital, a new tiger Experience, and an exhibit on the way, the money raised from this event will surely help in growing this amazing attraction in South Florida.
