Popular evening fundraiser — Beastly Ball — returns to the California Living Museum Saturday, May 7
Back by popular demand is the Beastly Ball, which will take place on Sat., May 7 starting at 6 p.m. at the California Living Museum, 10500 Alfred Harrell Hwy. The evening fundraiser will include tours of the zoo, close encounters with CALM’s ambassador animals, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, live music and a silent and live auction.
CALM hosted Beastly Ball for many years up until 2002, said KCSOS chief of staff Steve Sanders.
“It was one of our community’s premier events back in the 1990s. After our members starting asking about it again, we decided this year would be a good time to revive the once-popular event,” he said.
Guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvre stations set throughout the zoo, in addition to no-host bar options starting at 6 p.m. Sanders said there will be “beer by the bears,” wine under CALM’s gazebo and a martini bar on the lookout adjacent to the Bighorn Sheep exhibit.
A gourmet dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m., followed by a live auction that will include a South African Photo Safari and a four-bedroom town home rental in Ireland, among many other great items.
Individual tickets are $125 per person or $900 for a table of eight, with all proceeds benefiting CALM’s new California Coast Room Exhibit set to open later this year and the zoo’s wildlife rehab efforts.
