Directors Don Harrington and Barbara J. Menard joined throngs of San Diegans at the annual San Diego Zoo Food & Wine Celebration held on the grounds of the zoo on Saturday, September 22, 2012. This gala celebration raises money for the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research. The evening includes food and beverage from over 175 vendors, live music, animal ambassador encounters and a silent auction. As director Barbara likes to call it, “eat your way around the zoo” is a “not to be missed” event!
