Elephants and Ivory: Central Park Zoo Event 2011

Recently, I went out with a co-worker and friend to a charity event held in the Central Park Zoo. It was a lot of fun. All of the proceeds go to support efforts to save important remaining elephant populations around the world. The gala highlighted the WCS’s century-long commitment to elephant husbandry, research and conservation. The park was decorated beautifully with colorful lighting, huge flower arrangements and of course lots of food and drinks.

There are so many events happening in New York City and especially during the Summer. I think going out with friends is a great way to broaden your social circle and network with groups of people that have similar interests or occupations as you do. This event in particular had a younger crowd after dinner which was fun because the DJ played some great music and people were able to mix and mingle. It was on Thursday which wasn't ideal but it was still a fabulous event. Check out this intricate flower sculpture of an elephant!
