Mary Pearlman (Women’s Board President)
On Thursday, November 21, the Women’s Board of Lincoln Park Zoo hosted more than 200 Zoo supporters for an intimate evening at The Casino for its biennial event ZooLA (Zoo Live Auction). Raising more than $245,000 to benefit Chicago’s beloved institution, guests delighted in cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before taking seat for the live auction where rare, luxury packages were available for purchase, including an opportunity to name two of Lincoln Park Zoo’s Chilean flamingos, a Lake Michigan yacht cruise, a week-long vacation at a Jackson Hole home, and a Boka progressive dinner for four.
