Welcome to the Jungle

Usually, if you come to the Zoo wearing a tuxedo or an evening gown you will be drastically overdressed. But for the Zoological Society’s annual Zoo Ball, it’s a perfect fit. This black-tie event is the Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s largest annual fundraiser, raising nearly $800,000 last year for the Zoological Society and its mission to support the Milwaukee County Zoo. Zoo Ball is presented by BMO Harris Bank along with Zoo Ball chairs, Nate and Mary Cunniff and Chuck and Connie Roedel.

The evening starts off with cocktails and a silent auction featuring hundreds of items. Then, enjoy a gourmet dinner inside the Zoo grounds followed by live music, dancing and a voice auction. The extensive auctions will feature items such as the naming rights to a future zoo-born animal, VIP seating at the top of the Northwestern Mutual building for the July 3 fireworks, jewelry, dining experiences and much more.
