Palm Beach, Florida – As guests were talking and still nibbling on dinner, Sotheby’s Auctioneer Jamie Niven started the live auction bidding at a modest pace. Then the room went silent as guests started to realize that bidding for one particular item was going higher and higher until Niven proudly exclaimed “Sold!” for the naming rights of the next tiger cub born at the Palm Beach Zoo.   

It was indeed a wild night on January 21 as the Year of the Tiger Dinner Dance raised $1 million for the Palm Beach Zoo. Netscape Founder Jim Clark’s $45,000 winning bid to name the next tiger cub to be born at the Zoo helped to bring that total to the $1 million mark.

More than 400 donors, supporters and friends attended the seventh annual dinner dance held at The Breakers. The evening began in the Mediterranean Ballroom with cocktails and hand-passed, made-to-order martinis while guests were treated to a very close encounter with some of the Zoo's most adorable and fascinating animals such as Scooter, the popular binturong; Wilbur, the sloth; singing dogs and others. Dinner and live auction followed in the Venetian Ballroom, where each table centerpiece displayed towering trees and foliage, and images of tigers prominent around the room including “candy” tigers made by The Candy Man, who spent the evening crafting beautiful tiger lollipops for guests to enjoy. After the live auction, guests were treated to uniquely created individual banana splits and then danced to the music of Soul Survivor.

 

Dr. Terry Maple, president and CEO of the Palm Beach Zoo spoke about the important work being done at the Zoo to save endangered species like the Malayan Tiger. He noted that the worldwide wild tiger population has dropped from more than 100,000 in 1900 to less than 3,200 today, and that three subspecies of tigers are already extinct. The World Wildlife Fund estimates that at the current rate of decline tigers will be extinct within a generation.

 

 

The Palm Beach Zoo joins an international effort to help save endangered Malayan Tigers whose numbers have dwindled to less than 500 in the wild. The Palm Beach Zoo is partnering with Panthera and the Wildlife Conservation Society through its Tigers Forever project to help protect tigers and their habitat. It is part of a global effort of which the Palm Beach Zoo is proud to be a part.

 

In November, the Palm Beach Zoo introduced its newest big cat, a female Malayan tiger named "Berapi." As part of the zoo's efforts to save tigers, the plan is for "Berapi" to mate with "Rimba," the zoo's male Malayan tiger, and produce cubs in the very near future.

Kristy Clark, Darlene Jordan, Bridget Koch and Karin Luter were chairwomen for the 2011 Dinner Dance. Honorary Chairman was Mrs. Charlotte Kimelman in memory of her late husband, Ambassador Henry Kimelman. Event Committee Chairmen were Whitney Wood Bylin and Thomas C. Quick.
