Well, it was that time of year again last night ... time to attend Zoofari — the annual gala event to support The Santa Ana Zoo. You might remember my talking about it last year here. This year, the theme was The Funky Monkey, where the decor and music and colors of the night took us back to the 1960s. Super fun.


During the silent auction, we were able to secure this beautiful photograph by Bill Dow, one of the Giant Anteaters (the male one) now living at The Santa Ana Zoo. There is also a female anteater living at the zoo. We are hoping that they will eventually make baby anteaters!


As you may recall here, after we broke ground to start building the home for this pair, we embarked on a campaign to raise funds to secure the naming rights for the male anteater. One of the great things we were able to announce to the guests during Zoofari was that through the support of UCIrvine and the UCI Alumni Association and various community friends, the male anteater is now officially named Peter ... as in Peter the Anteater. 
The anteaters are officially out of "quarentine" and will gradually become more visible at the zoo. Hope you'll consider making a trip out to see these awesome creatures. Peace. Out.

Great post and great job on making a difference.

Wow! you look hot! What a perfect looking dress.
Happy that the event was a hit.

Maybe i will have the pleasure of meeting Peter one day:)

LOVE that dress of yours! You wear it well!


As I looked at this photo on your blog, my first thought was that it was vintage. then you wrote that it was an 80's theme, that explains it! you wore the perfect dress! Personally I think the 80's were a FUN time!!

oops! I got my years mixed up, although I did have fun during the 80's, ha ha!
