Your friends will be “green” with envy as you nosh on organic and locally grown food samples, the city’s trendiest restaurants, enjoy sips from compostable cups, dance the night away and view fireworks on the lakefront terrace – with the help of Shedd’s 32,000 animals! “Sea” some of our toad-ally amazing amphibians, fin-tastic sharks in Wild Reef, otter-ly adorable rescue sea otters and more.

It is their hope that the awareness created inspires each of us to be more conscious of their “BLUprint” and how we can contribute to the protection of our oceans and lakes, and the animals that live in them.

Join over 1,000 young Chicago social and business leaders as they raise vital funds to support Shedd’s sustainability, conservation and education initiatives. Guests will “sea” toad-ally amazing amphibians, fin-tastic sharks in Wild Reef, otter-ly adorable rescue sea otters and more. During the event, you can catch an aquatic presentation, check out a diver presentation, learn how Shedd is reducing its environmental footprint and find out how you can do the same at home!

This is the event of the year, so don’t miss it.
