Proceeds from the event help support the Dallas Zoo’s dedication to providing the best animal care, deliver unique education offerings and strengthen its wildlife conservation efforts.

Honorary Chef Chair Dan Landsberg of Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa, along with Chef Wrangler Brett Krafft from the Hilton Lincoln Centre joined guests at the award-winning Giants of the Savanna exhibit for a strolling dinner among the 30 restaurant stations representing the finest restaurants in Dallas.
