Where: The zoo's Masihara Pavilion.
The scoop: Animal ambassadors including Winston the pig, a pair of dingoes and a pygmy falcon welcomed close to 400 YP zoo enthusiasts for an energized schmooze. DJ Nick Alvear kept the beats going while the YPs feasted on breakfast tacos and ice cream. Bloody Marys, mimosas and iced coffees quenched the youthful thirsts.
While helping build an enrichment hammock for the orangutans, fans raised $19,000 for the zoo's various programs.
Who: Fitz McDonald, Mitchell Greco, Carey Kirkpatrick, David Rassin, Jim Petersen, Gray Thornton, Kendall Hanno, Tamar Mendelssohn, Ted Bowen, and Sam Cole.
