The Women’s Board and Board of Trustees of the Chicago Zoological Society hosted an evening of cocktails, a three-course dinner, live auction, and music by Maggie Speaks during the 36th Annual Whirl at Brookfield Zoo, a black-tie affair. More than 620 guests celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Women’s Board and raised $1.2 million. Since its inception in 1992, the Women’s Board has raised more than $30 million for the Society, presented nearly $200,000 in educational scholarships, and hosted tens of thousands of children at Brookfield Zoo through its outreach endeavors.
