Visiting the Milwaukee County Zoo is always an adventure. You never know what kind of animal behaviors you might see. That’s why the theme for this year’s Zoo Ball, sponsored by Johnson Controls, Inc., is Zoo Venture. Zoo Ball is the Society’s largest fundraiser. Chairing this year’s event are Charles and Cheryl Harvey of Milwaukee. Now retired, Charles was the chief diversity officer and vice president of community affairs for Johnson Controls, Inc. Celebrating its 32nd anniversary, this black-tie event has raised more than $9.3 million for the nonprofit Society.

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 the Brewers Community Foundation; entertainment is sponsored by Generation Growth Capital, Inc. The event’s extensive auction will feature prizes such as dining experiences, travel packages and sporting event tickets, spa specials and much more.

Last year’s event raised more than $608,000 for the Zoological Society and its support of the Milwaukee County Zoo.

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:
