2018 Zoo To Do Co-Chair Kim Hext is just full of news about the annual Dallas Zoo fundraiser on Saturday, October 13.
First, Heritage Auctions just sent over a gorgeous diamond bracelet to be up for grabs at the auction. Thank heaven they opted for an environmental-friendly material! No ivory here, thank you.
Second, Kim reports there are just four tables left before the evening of feasting, fundraising and festivities is sold out.
Advice: Don’t put off another minute if you were planning on join the Safari Soiree. You can get one of the few remaining spots locked down here. It will be a great opportunity to see the new additions to the Zoo family.
Second piece of advice: Park your stilettos in your closet and toss away your diet for the night. After all, the grazing grounds will have the following chefs will tantalizing tastebuds: Kelly Buckley of 7-Eleven Inc., Chef Christopher Patrick of Abacus, Mark Guatelara of Asador, Chef Carlo Gattini of Botolino Gelato, Chef Patton Robertson of Café Momentum, Chef Nick Walker of CBD Provisions at The Joule, Chef Lan A. Nickens of Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House, Chef Dan Landsberg of Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa, El Bolero Mexicana Cocina, Chef José Salmeron of El Bolero Mexicana Concina, Chef Meaders Ozarow of Empire Baking Company, Chef Eric Dreyer of Fearing’s Restaurant, Chef Jacob Williamson of Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck, Chef Stephen Rogers of Gemma/Sachet, Chef Jessica Brown of Hypnotic Donuts, Chef Jennifer Newbold of Imoto, Chef Eduard Ramirez of Lovers Seafood and Market, Chef Nico Sanchez of Meso Maya, Chef Paula Lambert of Mozzarella Company, Chef David Crow of Neiman Marcus The Zodiac, Tara Cooper of Nothing Bundt Cakes – Highland Park, Chef Janice Provost of Parigi, Chef Blythe Beck of Pink Magnolia, Chef Abraham Salum of Salum, Chef Jim “Sevy” Severson of Sevy’s Grill, Chef Carlos Capistran of Shinsei, Chef Gilbert C. Garza of Suze and Chef Jake Derrough of Two Sister’s Catering.
Word has it that Kim is negotiating with Mother Nature to behave herself that night, so the two- and four-legged guests and residents can enjoy the festivities under a starry night. But if negotiations breakdown and Ma Nature has a temper tantrum, there’s a back-up plan already. Check MySweetCharity on Thursday, October 11, if the backup plan is put into action.
