Auction Viewing & Bidding

Online June 14 at 8 a.m. – June 20 at 8 p.m.

DON’T MISS OUT! You’ve never seen an auction like this. Our fantastic auction will feature one-of-a-kind items and experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.

What is Zoo Ball?

Each year, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo hosts our annual fundraising gala- Zoo Ball. Again this year, we’re going virtual- which means that you can have fun and support the Zoo, all from the comfort of your couch (you can even wear your giraffe pajamas- we won’t tell!).

How it works:

  1. Our event will begin online on Monday, June 14 with the launch of our spectacular auction, featuring unique art, once-in-a-lifetime animal experiences, and so much more! Auction bidding will be open until Sunday, June 20 at 8 p.m., so check the site early and often to make sure you get your items!
  2. Then, on Thursday, June 17, sit back, relax, and enjoy the virtual ride HERE as we get you up-close-and-personal with some of our favorite animal “celebrities” at CMZoo! During the evening, join us for trivia and virtually explore the Zoo with us: on our YouTube video link, on this webpage, or our Facebook event page. Even if trivia isn’t your thing, you’ll want to tune in to hear more about some of the auction items, learn some behind-the-scenes Zoo info, and have a chance to support our incredible Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
  3. All proceeds from Zoo Ball will benefit the Zoo’s general operating budget, which funds all of our critical work in conservation, education and animal care. Your support matters so much! We hope you’ll join us during this abnormally normal time.

How Can I Participate?

There are lots of ways to participate in this year’s event!

  • Donate! A donation of any size makes such an impact! Donations are 100% tax-deductible and 100% will go directly to the Zoo’s general operations.
  • Bid on auction items. Items will be available in many price ranges, so there’s something for everyone! Auction runs online June 14-20.
  • “Attend” the event on June 17. Your presence is requested! You can simply join us here, at the video link on this webpage, at 6:30 p.m. sharp on Thursday, June 17. Or, you can elevate your experience by purchasing a VIP ticket ($250/ticket) or a Premier Patron “table” ($3,200/”table” of 8). These enhanced tickets come with an exclusive Zoo Ball swag bag and invitations to an exclusive cocktail party at the Zoo later in the year – on Friday, September 10, 2021. No matter how you choose to join us, we can’t wait to “see” you! A night of trivia, Zoo fun, and adventures only found at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo starts here!
