A WILD Night at the Friends of Conservation Ball!
The Friends of Conservation Ball was a "wildly" successful event raising more than $330,000 for the organization at the Palmer House Hilton. Chaired by founder Reute Butler and Paul Iacono, the gala included a wildlife presentation by John Rendall (of the viral YouTube sensation "Christian the Lion") with more than 300 in attendance. Fashionable guests bid on exotic live auction packages and had a chance to be photographed with the stars of the night, a ring-tailed lemur, a rare white baby Bengal tiger and other rarities! WATCH!
