— Emerging and aspiring leaders from across central Indiana are invited to join the Indianapolis Zoo for an evening of food and live music during Zoolala, presented by Lockhart Cadillac.
The inaugural event will run from 7:30 p.m. to midnight Feb. 2 in the Dolphin Gallery at the zoo. The Indianapolis Zoo Associate Council will host the event.
Founded in 2011, the associate council is made up of emerging leaders from the area who are dedicated to supporting the zoo and its mission of advancing animal conservation by actively participating in fundraising and volunteer activities.
The theme for this first-ever Zoolala is "Taking Flight," giving a nod to both the new organization as well as the zoo's newest permanent exhibit, "Flights of Fancy: A Brilliance of Birds" presented by Citizens Energy Group.
DJ Lockstar and The Flying Toasters will provide live entertainment during the event, which will also include hors d'oeuvres and an open bar.
The event will provide an opportunity for young community leaders to engage each other in a social setting while also supporting the zoo's animal conservation efforts. Attire for the event is formal and all guests must be 21 or older.
Tickets are $125 per person and availability is limited. Tickets may be purchased through the zoo's website at IndianapolisZoo.com.
