The sold-out second annual OKC Zoo Gala was held at the zoo terrace. Presented by Dr. Margaret Freede and Judge Dan Owens. Nearly 300 guests were immersed in African drums, wildlife and African-inspired cuisine and enjoyed an exclusive preview of the awe-inspiring Expedition Africa, the zoo’s largest habitat expansion in its history, before it officially opens to the public this summer. The gala also honored those individuals who have amplified the zoo’s mission through their wild generosity. This year’s honorees included the Inasmuch Foundation, Lee Allan Smith and the late Josephine Freede. Fundraising efforts from this event benefited the OKC Zoo and the Expedition Africa project.
