 Wild at Heart

September 8, 2022 @ 6:30 pm 10:00 pm

“Wild at Heart will be an unforgettable evening for our city,” said honorary chair Nancy Goedecke. “Events like this are essential for the zoo to be able to keep its gates open. Proceeds from ticket sales will not only help ensure the zoo can provide necessary maintenance for the animal exhibits, but it will also help the zoo continue its incredible conservation and community work, ensuring our zoo remains an impactful resource and enjoyable destination for generations to come!”

Presented by First Horizon Bank, Wild at Heart is the zoo’s largest fundraising effort of the year. From animal encounters, delicious food, an open bar and music by Yacht Rock Schooner, this is an event you don’t want to miss, Goedecke said. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in their best “wild chic” attire to bring out their inner animal. Come casual or formal in your favorite feathers, stripes, spots or scales.
