We are so happy to announce that this year’s event raised more than $1.2 million for
Lincoln Park Zoo. Education is a primary focus of the Women’s Board, and this
year’s Ball supported the development of an innovative new education center
designed to enhance learning outside of the traditional classroom and
cultivate the next generation of conservation scientists.

A special thanks to the Women’s Board President, Kim Theiss, and
Gala Co-Chairs, Karen Eisenbart and Denise Stefan Ginascol, for their dedication.

We are forever grateful for the hard work put forth by the Lincoln Park Zoo staff
and our partners who were instrumental in creating such a beautiful evening.

We would also like to acknowledge our generous sponsors
and partners - we are so thankful for your support.
