A Wild Affair! will be held on Friday, April 26th at ZooMontana! This elegant and always delightful event will begin at 5:30pm with an extended cocktail hour. Guests will stroll through the Zoo while enjoying appetizers, drinks, a silent auction and of course, animal encounters. Dinner and a lively auction will follow at 7pm.

A Wild Affair is ZooMontana’s largest fundraiser and we invite you to be a part of it! As in year’s past, proceeds will be used for Zoo operations as well as Zoo improvements. This wonderful evening has kick-started many Zoo projects including the amazing plaza playground, our outreach van, and the ZooPavilion. This year’s selected project is a new sloth exhibit in the Discovery Center, allowing the Zoo to bring in one of the most requested animals.
