The gala will be held at 6 p.m. April 27 in a magical zoo setting punctuated by a beautiful night sky filled with animal constellations.

With ndtArtemis as Title Sponsor, and Holiday Builders and Green Turtle Market as Presenting Sponsors, guests will experience an evening of awe, excitement and fun at this event.

As a non-profit organization, Brevard Zoo relies heavily on its donors to enable its mission of Wildlife Conservation through Education and Participation.

“We are looking forward to an extraordinary event with a number of new elements and surprises that will make this year’s Safari Under the Stars an unforgettable evening,” said Karen Davis, Development Director at Brevard Zoo. “For example, we have added an exclusive VIP Reception with delectable delicacies, libations, signature entertainment, exclusive auction and other surprises reserved for sponsors electing to add that element to their evening.”

All guests attending Safari Under the Stars will enjoy fabulous hors d’oeuvres, full bars and a seated dinner, followed by dessert, specialty coffees and dancing at Safari after Dark.

Channel 6 News Anchor Lauren Rowe will be the Master of Ceremonies and there will be a great auction and raffle opportunities.

Specially planned for the event will be naming opportunities for the Zoo’s newest members—a jaguar cub and two Masai giraffe.  The Zoo also plans for some one-of-a-kind experiences to be auctioned off during a live auction.

A Raffle Walk with extraordinary prizes is planned.  And, the winner of this year’s Grand Raffle will be announced.
