February… a time of love and longing framed by the bracing chill of winter’s
peak. What better way to warm your hands and heart than by supporting the zoo
in its 5th annual Paw de Deux gala event? Join us on February 9th
for a thrilling evening of both silent and live auctions, not to mention the
divine drinks, dining, and dancing that the evening is promised to bring.
Paw de Deux will be held at the beautiful Greysolon Ballroom in Downtown Duluth.
As you peruse the hundreds of auction items, be sure to enjoy complimentary
champagne and martinis. After, you will be treated to a gourmet dinner followed
by our live auction. Once the food has worn off and the drinks have kicked in,
we invite you to bust a move and dance the night away to the musical stylings of the Pot Bellied
Stallions. After all, Paw de Deux does translate as a dance for two!
Paw de Deux’s 180 guests wined, dined, danced, and donated their way to over
$41,000 for the benefit of the zoo’s Pavilion Renovation Project. This year,
all funds raised will go towards efforts to Rebuild • Renew • Revitalize the
zoo after the flood we faced in June. What’s up for auction, you ask? We will
have an amazing array of items ranging from the finest local art to exclusive zoo-themed
experiences, elegant getaways, exquisite jewelry, fantastic dining and
entertainment packages, superb services and specialty items, and more!
start at just $100 and are on sale now at www.lszoo.org or by calling the zoo at
218-730-4500 ext 203. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve early! If you’re
looking to bring a group, make sure to read about our sponsorship levels. Each
tier includes spectacular benefits including special behind-the-scenes tours
with our animals and more! So break out your finest gowns and very best suits!
We can’t wait to see you on February 9th!
