The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world’s largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together, these activities change attitudes towards nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in harmony. WCS is committed to this mission because it is essential to the integrity of life on Earth. Learn more about them on their website.

This event was as spectacular as its setting, held at the famous Central Park Zoo! Imagine holding a glamorous party amid the sounds of wildlife pacing back and forth in their cages…right in Manhattan! Even the heavy rain did not dampen the spirit — or the fun of those who attended. There was great music, a lively crowd and stylish people in glamorous attire all coming together to support a great cause!
