GALA 2016: Dark Waters

Saturday, June 11, 2016
6:00 p.m. - Midnight

Explore the mysteries of the deep at “Dark Waters,” Shedd’s 2016 Board of Trustees Gala! Hosted by Co-chairs Alissa and Tom King and Lesly and David Koo, funds raised through “Dark Waters” support Shedd’s conservation initiatives, including developing environmental stewards through learning programs, international field research and action programs.

On the evening of Saturday, June 11, guests will enjoy cocktails while strolling through Shedd’s outdoor terraces, the Amphibians special exhibit and the Abbott Oceanarium. They’ll take a seat for a special aquatic show and afterward dine among the animals in Shedd’s historic galleries, rotunda and Kovler Hall. They’ll dance the night away in the “Submerged” lounge or check out the stunning skyline view from Shedd’s outdoor terraces.

We hope you'll join us!
