The highly anticipated and unique Beastly Feast gala presented by Norfolk Southern took place in May 2024, and it went off without a hitch! This year’s event, “A Night Untamed,” was a tremendous success thanks to considerable support from community members and corporate partners. The event annually garners significant support for Zoo Atlanta’s education and conservation programs through table and ticket sponsorships, live and silent auctions, and generous donations.

Proof of the Pudding proudly provided the food for the gala. Guests enjoyed a delightful culinary experience featuring plated spring salads, a mouthwatering dual entrée, and a decadent dessert. Highlights from this wonderful charitable event are showcased below:
