PALM BEACH (January 15, 2012) – On Tuesday evening, January 10, the David Morris boutique on Worth Avenue held a cocktail reception honoring the 2012 Palm Beach Zoo Chairwomen, Lillian Ferndandez, Karin Luter, Carol Mack and Honorary Chairwomen, Bridget Koch, Darlene Jordan and Kristi Clark.  

Hosted by Mr. and Mrs. David Morris and Mr. and Mrs. Jeremy Morris, the evening was a sparkling spectacular with the chairwomen and event chairs adoring the jeweler’s latest creations. The reception was a pre-curser for the Born To Be Wild Dinner Dance, which will take place this Friday, January 20, 2012, at The Breakers in Palm Beach.  In addition to hosting the pre-event, David Morris is donating a signature necklace to be auctioned off the night of the dinner dance valued at $54,500.

For over four decades, royalty and discerning international collectors have composed the clientele of the venerable British fine jewelry brand in which David Morris established in 1962.  Today, Jeremy Morris, his son, is managing director and principal designer of David Morris. David Morris luxury boutiques can be found around the world including Palm Beach, Doha, Dubai, Hong Kong, Moscow, Riga and Riyadh.

Close to selling out, the Born To Be Wild Dinner Dance promises to be one of Palm Beach’s wildest nights.  The theme for the 2012 event is a most appropriate choice honoring the arrival of the three Malayan tiger cubs born in May.  Last year, the Palm Beach Zoo was one of only two institutions to successfully breed Malayan tigers. In Partnership with Panthera and the Wildlife Conservation Society through their Tigers Forever project, The Palm Beach Zoo is proud to be a part of a global effort to help protect tigers and their habitat. Tigers are nearly gone and three subspecies of tigers are already extinct. The worldwide wild tiger population has dropped from more than 100,000 in 1900 to fewer than 3,200 today. The World Wildlife Fund estimates that at the current rate of decline, tigers will be extinct within a generation.

The Palm Beach Zoo’s Born To Be Wild Dinner Dance begins at 7 o’clock with cocktails and mingling with some of the zoos most adorable and fascinating zoo animals.  Following dinner, the night will get roaring with a live auction by Sotheby’s own Jamie Niven and dancing with music by Heatwave.

Lillian Fernandez, Karin Luter, and Carol Mack are serving as Chairwomen for the Dinner Dance.  Honorary Chairwomen include Kristy Clark, Darlene Jordan, and Bridget Koch.  Event Committee Chairmen are Whitney Wood Bylin and Thomas C. Quick with Samantha Storkerson serving as Auction Chairwoman. 

Host Committee members include: Mr. and Mrs. Kane Baker, Ms. Lavinia Baker, Mr. Donald Burns and Gregory Connors, Mrs. Kim K. Campbell, Mr. and Mrs. Roberto de Guardiola, Mr. and Mrs. J. Pepe Fanjul, Jr., Mrs Tina Fanjul, Mr. and Mrs. James Fifield, Mr. and Mrs. Mark Freitas, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Gannon, Mr. and Mrs. Rick Goldsmith, Mrs. Robert M. Grace, Mrs. Martin D. Gruss, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Busch Hager, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. William Hamm, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Kessler, Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Lamb, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Malloy, Mrs. Talbott Maxey, Mr. and Mrs. Dale McNully, Mr. and Mrs. James Meany, Mr. Stephen Myers, Mrs. William Pitt, Ms. Patricia Quick, Ms. Tiffany Reborn, Mr. and Mrs. John Raese, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Ramos, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick J. Rooney, Sr., Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Ross, Mrs. Frances Scaife, and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Van der Grift.

Proceeds from Born To be Wild will help the zoo to advance its mission to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat, and to inspire others to value and conserve the natural world. The Palm Beach Zoo has become a national leader in conservation and endangered species survival and is committed to the highest professional standards of animal care, providing high quality exhibits and facilities that sustain its growing collection of wildlife.  Since 1969, the Palm Beach Zoo has been a place where children can participate in an open-air classroom of living creatures while fostering an awareness, appreciation, and respect for animals. The Palm Beach Zoo is one of the largest educational institutions in Palm Beach County, reaching more than 100,000 individuals over the past year alone.  The Palm Beach zoo is home to more than 1,400 animals and is nationally accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
