“SEX AND THE CITY ZOO 4: SEXY BEAST!,” an extraordinary Valentine’s Day event celebrating romance in the animal kingdom, is presented by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) on Saturday, February 9, 2013, 5:00pm, in the Zoo’s Witherbee Auditorium.
The adults-only affair features a lighthearted and enlightening talk by actress Joleen Lutz, who is also known for her work as an interpretive naturalist of zoology. Also included are a reception featuring tempting desserts and wines; “animal walk-abouts,” which include chats with keepers and the chance to observe small animals up close; and an optional four-course dinner at Reggie’s Bistro inside the Zoo. Proceeds from the fourth annual fund-raiser, generously sponsored by Whole Foods Market West Hollywood, support the Zoo’s mission of wildlife preservation and conservation at the Zoo and around the world.
