CAFFA Tree Trimming at Brookfield Zoo

November 22, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

CAFFA 2013 Tree Trimming

CAFFA 2013 Tree TrimmingJoin us for the annual CAFFA tree trimming at the wonderful Brookfield Zoo!  Enjoy some hot cocoa and help us decorate the CAFFA tree.  And, stay and take in the lights and indoor and outdoor exhibits!  Mark the official start of the holidays with this fun and kid-friendly event.

Also, this event coincides with National Adoption Awareness Month and provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the faces of adoption.

WE NEED YOUR HELP – please send us a picture or two of your beautiful family…and if you’re waiting to be matched, send us a picture of YOU so we can create a “Hoping to Adopt” ornament! We will take your pictures, laminate them, and turn them into ornaments for our tree.

To ensure your pictures will be included, please send them by email to or by snail mail to:

Chicago Area Families For Adoption
P.O. Box 5995
Naperville, IL 60567-5995
by November 17th

The Tree will be decorated on November 22nd at 11:00am.
Our Tree Location: #89 in the East Mall, near Stingray Bay and BZ Red Hots Restaurant.

If you are planning a visit to the zoo during the Holiday Magic Festival, stop by to see our tree. You are welcome to bring your ornaments / pictures, as the trees will be on display during the Holiday Magic Festival until the end of the year. If you choose to bring your own picture ornaments, please be sure to laminate them, or coat them with durable clear packing tape, so that they withstand the Chicago winter! As a reminder, we will not be able to return any pictures sent to us. We hope to see all of our families represented!
