At this year’s annual Zoo Ball, presented by Briggs & Stratton Corporation, we’re taking you to the famous intersection of Hollywood & Vine in Hollywood, Calif. There you can find the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, which boasts more than 2,500 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalk. At this year’s Zoo Ball, instead of being dazzled by Hollywood stars, we hope you’ll be awed being near the Zoo’s more than 2,000 mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles. Chairing this year’s event are Tammy and Harold Redman and Kim and Todd Teske. Harold is the president of the products group at Briggs & Stratton and Todd is the president and CEO of Briggs & Stratton. Celebrating its 33rd anniversary, this black-tie event has raised almost $10 million for the nonprofit Zoological Society. Last year’s event raised nearly $526,000 for the Zoological Society and its support of the Milwaukee County Zoo.

The evening includes cocktails, gourmet dining and dancing. The dining venues are made possible thanks to support from U.S. Bank; the welcome reception is sponsored by Brewers Community Foundation. The event’s extensive auction will feature prizes such as dining experiences, travel packages, sporting event tickets, spa specials and much more.

Individual tickets start at $300. Consider supporting the event at a higher level at the second-tier ticket price of $350 per person or through a table sponsorship:
