Summer Safari Chair Vanessa Anton and her husband, Denny
The Akron Zoo’s 7th annual Summer Safari was held Aug. 13. The event raised over $125,300 for the animals, education and conservation programs at the Akron Zoo, the most money raised in the seven years of the event.
The night was filled with up-close animal encounters, food from some of the area’s finest restaurants and caterers, a silent auction and raffle. The band, Soul’d Out, performed live for the 375+ guests in attendance. Everyone was also treated to a live animal show by the zoo’s education staff.
