Bejeweled Ball Begins Fundraising For Jaguar Habitat

THE SCENE: San Antonio Zoological Society celebrated their 34th Annual Zoobilation Ball, where it announced its next big fundraising project, an expanded jaguar habitat. Guests arrived at the ball, themed Jewels of the Kasbah, set under a soaring tent decorated like an exotic jungle retreat. Among lush foliage and luxurious table settings, guests were treated to delectable bites and tempting beverages, and a performance by an Arabian style dance troupe.

THE VIBE: It was all for the sake of the catwalk – in this case, literally. With the exciting addition of two jaguar cubs last September, the zoo is looking forward to building a secondary habitat, which the jaguars can access via an overhead catwalk. Distinguished speakers made welcoming remarks, and the zoo unveiled its latest upgrade to the habitat for African lions and Sumatran tigers, “Big Cat Valley,” where zoo guests can get face-to-face with these magnificent animals – making for an unforgettable, unique experience. The silent auction included spa and beauty treatments, as well as extraordinarily covetable premier prizes. Then the action then turned to the dance floor, where guests danced the night away while others popped bottles of bubbly and mingled late into the evening.

THE CAUSE: Co-chairing this year’s event were Triana and Brandon Grossman, along with co-chairs Sheila and Marko Barrett. Guests raised an impressive amount toward the $1-2 million goal for the jaguar expansion project. The San Antonio Zoo is dedicated to providing outstanding animal care while offering an exceptional recreation and education experience to more than one million guests annually.
