Thank you to everyone who attended Zoo New England’s annual fundraising gala, generously presented by Citizens Bank. Held on Saturday, May 7th at the Royal Sonesta Boston, the event raised a record-breaking $400,000 to support Zoo New England’s Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo, including the Zoos’ education programs, and conservations efforts both locally and around the world.

The event's theme was I Am Zoo New England – applauding all people who are inspired by animals, education, and conservation. The enthusiasm of our guests and sponsors was palpable as they enjoyed dinner, dancing, and meeting a few special animals.
