* For those too new to the Zoo to remember Zoo To Do, it was a large, annual fund-raising gala that the Zoo Society held every September from 1987 through 2019. The party welcomed up to 900 guests annually and, thanks to the gala's many corporate sponsors (especially Randolph Communications) and generous auction donations from the region's top potters and other artisans, Zoo To Do, raised more than $4 million for the Zoo during its 40-year run.
