Rendezvous In The Zoo

The San Diego Zoo is celebrating their 30th anniversary of Rendezvous In The Zoo (R?I•T•Z) gala in June. This annual fund-raising gala has netted more than twelve million dollars since 1984. Funds support new and improved exhibits at the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park as well as conservation programs through the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy.

This year’s event, “The Beat Goes On,” chaired by the mother-and-daughter team of Jane Fetter, JJ Fetter and Margi Fetter Graham, will celebrate the dedicated volunteers who have handed down a legacy of generosity and tradition from one generation to the next. This year, these strong bonds serve to benefit the new Madagascar habitat planned at the San Diego Zoo.

R?I•T•Z features stunning animal themed décor in the unique setting of the Zoo; Joan Embery, the San Diego Zoo’s Conservation Ambassador, and zoo-keepers who will provide up-close encounters with a variety of animal ambassadors; silent auction filled with unique experiences, and dancing to the music of Wayne Foster Entertainment.

We ask you to join them in the rhythm as “The Beat Goes On.”

The $1.5 million R•I•T•Z 2013 challenge match generously provided by R•I•T•Z honorary chairs Audrey S. Geisel and Dragon & Don Sherman. For every dollar donated, our honorary chairs will match it three for one!
