The Winter Party Was Paused Since COVID Kept Us Away, So Instead We're Throwing You A Grand Spring Soirée!

Friday, May 13, 2022 | Fresno Chaffee Zoo | 6 - 10 p.m.

Dress in your best formal jungle attire, while we show our appreciation for our staff and providers. Enjoy a sunset dinner on the savanna while taking in the sights and sounds of the African Adventure exhibit. Hang out with some amazing party animals—and we don't just mean your colleagues— feed a giraffe on Twiga Terrace and visit stingrays and sharks in Stingray Bay's touch pool, during the first hour of the event.

** Please feel free to arrive 10-15 minutes early to ensure you have adequate time to get your parking validation and make your way to the event space. There will be a table at the entrance of the Fresno Chaffee Zoo where you will receive your official event wristbands and there will signage to help guide you to the event space. 

Please RSVP by Friday, April 29, by emailing  

CCFMG employees and providers are allowed to bring one guest to the Spring Soirée. Please note in your RSVP if you will be bringing a guest.
