Zoobilee Auction Preview

This year we have a great assortment of items for both the Live and Silent Auctions during Zoobilee. Remember, all proceeds go to help design a new home for the zoo's primates!

Item #1 - Original artwork by Zoo Director, Steve Burns
If the animals at Zoo Boise can paint (which they do), then why not the Director?  Using the Animal Kingdom as inspiration, Steve Burns created this one-of-a-kind table that any wild child will love.

Item #2 - Original artwork by Ward Hooper
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Friends of Zoo Boise, artist Ward Hooper has created an original poster showcasing six of Zoo Boise's most popular animals.  This auction features the artist's proof and the first copy, both beautifully framed by FrameWorks.

Item #3 - Wine-Pairing Dinner for 8 at Chandler's Steakhouse
Some animals know the virtues of fermented fruit - and now you can, too!  Enjoy a gourmet wine-pairing dinner for 8 at Chandler's Steakhouse.  The personalized menu will include delicious wine pairings for each course. 

Item #4 - Kauai Vacation
Many animals migrate to warmer climates for the winter - why not follow their lead?  Put away your winter clothes and head to Hawaii, where you and your travel partner will enjoy 8 days and 7 nights at the beautiful Kauai Beach Resort.  This beautiful plantation-style retreat with waterfalls, white sands, and blue ocean will free your spirit of aloha!  Includes lodging for 2 people, but not airfare.

Item #5 - Seattle Vacation
Jet off to Seattle for a great mini-vacation.  Enjoy a two night stay in a Space Needle Suite at the Pan Pacific Seattle Hotel, dinner at Ivar's, and during the day visit the Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle Aquarium.

Item #6 - Take a Ride in "Curtiss P40E Warhawk" WWII Fighter
Ride in one of the rarest and most famous fighter planes from WWII!
