More than 2,500 guests got wild at this year’s Congo-themed Zoofari on at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Chaired by John and Eileen Barrett, the evening at the zoo brought philanthropists and Zoo supporters together to sample offerings from 50 restaurants, and enjoy music, animal encounters and dancing under the stars. Fashionistas embraced the African theme, wearing animal prints, feathers, and leaves placed with a purpose. The 35th annual Zoofari raised funds for the care of 500 animal and 3,000 plant species, groundbreaking conservation and reproduction work, and educational outreach programs.
