Beastly Feast Gala

May 4

Sophisticated elegance, a unique locale and a spectacular auction make The Beastly Feast one of Atlanta’s most highly anticipated galas.

All proceeds from The Beastly Feast benefit Zoo Atlanta’s innovative and award-winning education programs and local and global conservation efforts.

A Night Untamed

Thank you to our Co-Chairs

The 2024 Beastly Feast, chaired by Pedro and Tomeka Cherry, was a huge success thanks to the generous support of community and corporate leaders. Their participation through tables and tickets sponsorship, live and silent auction purchases, and general donations was incredibly meaningful and garnered significant support for Zoo Atlanta’s renowned education and conservation programs.
