The Palm Beach Zoo’s annual gala has taken on the theme “The Garden in the Wild” in celebration of all things living at the Zoo. 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.
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.
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.
