Friends of the National Zoo
There to lend a helping paw

For years, the Friends of the National Zoo organization has held unique fundraisers to support the incredible maze of animals at the Smithsonian's National Zoo. The ZooFari event, in its 30th year, draws Washington's greatest restaurants. While the public sees pandas, orangutans, and elephants, these events support behind-the-scenes work: The National Zoo is known nationally for its conservation, research, and education programs. Turns out feeding time is for more than just watching a lion gobble down its meal -- it also supports a great cause.
