Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
June 8
7 – 11 p.m.

Journey to the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium for a one-of-a-kind soiree that celebrates the Zoo’s role as a global leader in conservation. Excursion to the Exotic is a marquee fundraiser for the 120-year-old institution that promises “incredible animal encounters, live entertainment, delectable dining and more.”

Guests will be shepherded from the Zoo entrance to the party by tram, where they can enjoy a signature Safari at Sundown cocktail from Maggie’s Farm Rum before enjoying an abundance of hors d’oeuvres and small plates like ruby rainbow trout, braised brisket and even a sous vide risotto station. Then it’s time for live entertainment, full bar, dancing and visits from some of the Zoo’s most genial residents.

Brightly colored cocktail attire is encouraged for this 21+ event. The event is presented by UPMC Health Plan and is produced by Martin Potoczny, founder and CEO of LUXE Creative.
