Lincoln Park Zoo's Zoo-ologie:
Walk on the Wild Side
Saturday, May 12
Strut your stuff for wildlife at the Auxiliary Board of Lincoln Park Zoo's
eighth annual signature fundraiser, Zoo-ologie: Walk on the Wild Side.
The event, which welcoms more than 1,000 guests to the zoo for a night
of culinary creations, drinks, dancing and a silent auction, will have a new
footprint this year. Guests can swing by the monkeys at Helen Brach
Primate House and dance in an urban oasis on the tented Park Place
Terrace. Also new this year is the Explorer Experience add-on, which will
give guests access to VIP programming in Regenstein Small
Mammal-Reptile House, including special tours, and much more!
All Zoo-ologie proceeds go toward the Auxiliary Board's commitment to
supporting Lincoln Park Zoo's The Pride of Chicago campaign, which
includes capital projects such as the new Searle Visitor Center, slated to
open in late 2018.
