The Women’s Board of Lincoln Park Zoo once again achieved a spectacular success hosting their annual gala, Zoo Ball, to raise funds to support Lincoln Park Zoo.
Co-chaired by Lisa Genesen and Christine Tierney, Zoo Ball 2016: Penguins in Paradise, presented by PowerShares QQQ, welcomed more than 900 guests for dining, dancing and dedicated support. Gathered beneath a clear tent that revealed the night sky and stars, guests mingled amidst décor inspired by South Africa’s Boulders Beach, raising more than $1.35 million to support capital improvements at Lincoln Park Zoo through our recently announced Pride of Chicago campaign.
The Penguins in Paradise theme reflects the upcoming Robert and Mayari Pritzker Penguin Cove, made possible in part by generous support from our Women’s Board. This state-of-the-art habitat will offer a home to a cozy colony of African penguins.
