June 20, 2020 | Virtual Event

Rendezvous in the Zoo (RITZ) 2020 is going virtual with a theme of “The Roaring Twenties: Puttin’ On The RITZ.” Enjoy a 1920s-themed gala from the comfort of home. Create the spirit of the night in style and music. Dress as flappers and their fellas, keeping in mind bobbed hair was all the rage for women. Cocktails served at home might be one of many favored alcoholic beverages of the bygone era. For instance, the “Grasshopper” and “Hanky Panky” were popular. The fun-loving co-chairs of this lively event, Michelle Forsythe and Kristi Pieper, have planned numerous attractions and diversions. There will be appearances by San Diego Zoo’s Rady Animal Ambassadors, as well as musical performances by Wayne Foster Entertainment, truly the “bee’s knees.” Honorary chairs are Evelyn and Ernest Rady and T. Denny Sanford. An online silent auction will be available June 12-20, with the big night taking place on Saturday, June 20. Premium guest levels include an “event in a box,” complete with bubbly for a toast, a gourmet dinner delivered to your door, and more. Proceeds will benefit the zoo’s critical needs campaign, supporting the conservation organization’s areas of greatest need. 619.287.5435, ritz.sandiegozoo.org    Darlene G. Davies
