PB Zoo Event May 10

Palm Beach Zoo supporters will be heading “South of the Border” on Friday, May 10 for the Palm Beach Zoo’s annual spring “Do at the Zoo” fundraiser. This fiesta casual affair takes place from 7 to 11 p.m. at the zoo.

All proceeds from “Do at the Zoo” will help the zoo advance its mission to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat and to inspire others to value and conserve the natural world.

The evening will feature a delicious array of south-of-the-border-themed finger foods provided by area restaurants including: Cha Cha’s, Echo, Imoto, Leopard Lounge, Malcolm’s: The Art of Food, Palm Beach Zoo’s Tropics Café, PB Catch, PDQ, Rooney’s Public House and Table 26.

There will be behind-the scenes tours of the bear, jaguar and bush dog habitats, and guests can dance under the stars in the zoo’s beautiful Mayan Plaza area to music by celebrity DJ Adam Lipson.

Bacardi USA is the cocktail sponsor and will provide fully staffed bars and bartenders serving hand-mixed Bacardi cocktails.
