(R.I.T.Z) ~ Zoozapalooza

June 15th at the San Diego zoo was the scene for the paw-pumping, vine-swinging sensation of the season titled: Zoozapalooza! Attendees enjoyed an evening of exotic animal encounters, gourmet food and cocktails, whimsical entertainment and dancing.

This year’s R·I·T·Z black-tie gala benefited the Sanford Children’s Zoo at the San Diego Zoo – a place where kids of all ages can learn and explore, sparking a passion for conservation.
