More than $1.9 million was raised during the Shedd Aquarium’s annual black-tie gala, this year entitled “Voyages.” Co-chaired by Anna and Bob Livingston, and sponsored by Dover Coporation and William Blair, the event welcomed 750 philanthropic leaders, who were entertained by renowned magician and mindreader Mark Toland. During the evening, guests had the opportunity to purchase custom travel expeditions available through The Aquarium’s international animal rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation programs at the William Blair donation stations. The Chicago Catz 16-piece orchestra played in Kovler Hall and Donica Lynn and Gabriel Datcu’s quartet had guests grooving into the night in the Jazz Lounge. sheddaquarium.org
