Update: Our annual Tropical Safari fundraiser gala will remain on the island of Palm Beach, and we were able to secure the same date in February at The Breakers.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society announces its decision to move its upcoming 2018 annual fundraiser from the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
"We have an unyielding commitment to inspire people to act on behalf of wildlife and the natural world," said Zoo CEO & President, Andrew Aiken. "After thoughtful consideration by Zoo leadership, we have decided it is important that we not allow distractions to deter us from our mission and culture.”
The Zoo's Tropical Safari Gala, held on the island with limited venue options, is the only black tie event where more than 400 guests mingle with wildlife.
“It is critical that the focus of this special night remains on saving species and raising awareness and money for the hundreds of animals, many of them endangered, in our care.”
