Karamu - Champions for Wildlife

You are totally invited to Karamu 32

Online Auction

Supporting ZooTampa at Lowry Park

Check back soon for more info about this year's Karamu event

Bid it to WIN it, and support the Zoo doing it! Our black tie gala, Karamu XXXII, may have been canceled, but that doesn’t mean it can't be a “win-win situation” with an online silent auction!

Looking for a night out, a staycation, or restaurant certificates? We’ve got that, and so much more! Sign up and participate in ZooTampa’s online silent auction. It’s more than just winning an item, you are helping fund conservation efforts here at ZooTampa.

Proceeds from your donation will help the Zoo preserve wildlife in Florida and throughout the world, create meaningful education programs for our community, and provide a safe and exciting experience for more than 1 million visitors each year.

Our goal is to raise over $75,000, which is approximately one day’s operating costs. In 31 years, Karamu has generated close to $5 million in support!

We are thankful for our many community partners, who made this silent auction possible.

Not interested in participating in the silent auction? Consider a donation to ZooTampa!

We hope you are as excited about this auction as we are, and if you have any questions or concerns, or are interested in participating in donating to our silent auction next year, please reach out to our fundraising team at Gifts@ZooTampa.org.
