Event organizers have announced the theme for the Palm Beach Zoo’s annual gala, to be held January 31, 2014, at The Breakers in Palm Beach. “The Garden in the Wild” theme will be in celebration of all things living at the Zoo. Cocktails begin at 7 p.m., with dinner and dancing to follow beginning at 8 p.m.

Officials hope the fund-raising event will help further the Zoo’s mission of protecting wildlife and wildlife habitat, and inspiring others to value and conserve the natural world.

James Berwind is serving as this year’s Chairperson. Michele Kessler is Honorary Chairperson. Thomas C. Quick and Whitney Bylin are Event Chairs, and Samantha Storkerson is Auction Chairperson.

The “Green Team” will help to spread the Zoo’s conservation message. It includes Palm Beach landscape architects, Mario Nievera & Keith Williams, who will collaborate with wildlife photographer, Budge Jamison, on this year’s gala invitation. Floral master, Tom Mathieu, will design centerpieces both lovely and live, that will be returned for planting at the Zoo.

Individual tickets are $750 each, and junior tickets (for individuals 40 and under) are $500 each. For more information, contact Pam Viscusi at pviscusi@palmbeachzoo.org, or (561) 533-0887 ext. 285.
