The New Orleans Zoo is at its best for the annual “Whitney Zoo-To-Do” fundraiser. The event sees the zoo transformed into a fairy-lit wonderland for one magical night on Friday, May 3. Proceeds will help underwrite the renewal and relocation of the Audubon Zoo’s Discovery Walk, where guests of all ages can begin their zoo experience by touching small, held animals and learning about the importance of conservation.

Don your white linen suits and cocktail dresses and join Whitney Bank Senior Vice President Gary Lorio; Audubon Commission President J. Kelly Duncan; “Whitney Zoo-To-Do” chair Olivia Manning; and “Zoo-To-Do for Kids” chair Anne Long for this swanky evening.

Many well-known local restaurants offer their unique cocktails and food, and guests can dance all night to the music of Björn Again, performing the greatest hits of ABBA, as well as Phat Hat, Ingrid Lucia and Jaywalkers Brass Band. The silent auction sends guests home with vacations, sports collectibles and jewelry, among other fabulous prizes. A 2013 Lexus ES 300h will be raffled off, thanks to Lexus of New Orleans.

Call 861-6160 for tickets and more information or visit AudubonInstitute.org/ZTD.
