Earlier this month our Event Rentals Unlimited Alabama team got the opportunity to be a part of the biggest annual event for The Birmingham Zoo, ZooGala 2015! Sponsored this year by long-time supporter IBERIABANK, attendees were invited to a VIP Party and then the main event – enjoying cocktails and a delicious dinner by Kathy G & Company. Live music for dancing and entertainment for the event was provided by Compozitionz. Throughout the evening guests enjoyed a silent auction with loads of wonderful items to bid on, animal walkabouts and views of the African elephants in their habitat. A near sold-out event, guests celebrated the Zoo’s 60th Anniversary during one spectacular evening!
For this year’s event we provided a variety of party rental inventory for activities held in the event’s signature location, the Zoo’s Trails of Africa. From tents to tables to chairs we were thrilled to be part of an event that was the talk of the town. A special shout out thank you to the all-star team we worked with to make this year happen: Arden Photography for capturing all the moments; The Major Event for their precision planning; KG Designs for the stunning decor and florals; A.G. Lighting for what they do best as well as the new digital screen that was the focal point of the entire evening event; Kathy G and Company for their beyond delicious food; and last but not least Barb’s who created the amazing 60th anniversary celebration cake enjoyed by all.
We look forward to being a part of the next fundraiser and seeing what the 2016 gala brings. The Birmingham Zoo is a local attraction that’s close to our team’s heart, as well as Birmingham’s community. If you’re not already a member – consider becoming one!
