San Antonio Zoo celebrates groundbreaking for new event center

The Ralston is set to become the city’s premier event center, according to the San Antonio Zoo.

SAN ANTONIO — On Monday the San Antonio Zoo broke ground on their new event center, The Ralston, which is set to become the city’s premier event center.

In a press release, the zoo said The Ralston will be able to host a variety of gatherings including galas, fundraisers, weddings, and other celebratory events fostering a sense of togetherness within the community.

Guests will be able to enjoy views of gorillas, lions, the African Savanna, and the downtown San Antonio skyline.

“The opening of The Ralston not only signifies a momentous occasion for celebrations but also represents a significant step towards advancing the zoo’s mission of inspiring love, engagement, and protection of animals and their habitats,” said co-chair for the Generational Zoo capital campaign, Susan Naylor.

San Antonio Zoo President and CEO Tim Morrow expressed gratitude for the event center’s  namesake donor, Shannon Ralston, who gave the zoo a $10 million donation from The Ralston Family Charitable Foundation in support of its Generational Zoo capital campaign.

“Shannon’s unwavering commitment to animal conservation is what brought this incredible moment to fruition,” said Morrow. “Her gift, the largest in San Antonio Zoo’s history, is making The Ralston possible, and proceeds from events hosted will help conserve animals in the wild.”
