Save the date for the hottest ticket of the summer: Como Friends’ Sunset Affair summer gala will be July 16th. The 100th anniversary of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory will provide the focus for this year’s fundraising event, “Perennials & Centennials.”
With so many new exhibits, Como Zoo has been the focal point for the last few years at Sunset Affair, but now with this wonderful anniversary to celebrate, it’s time to let the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory shine
While we’ll be celebrating the birthday of this great Victorian building, this is definitely not your typical garden party! The gala will include live music, special VIP seating options, amazing animal ambassadors, and an after-hours celebration of the new Centennial Garden are all part of the plan to raise community support for Minnesota’s most visited cultural attraction.
At Sunset Affair, guests are treated to a one-of-its-kind cocktail party complete with animal encounters, horticultural talks, entertainment and a great silent auction followed by dinner in the air-conditioned Visitor Center.
At The gala is scheduled for July 16th from 5:30 PM– 10:00 PM. A Patron table is $2,500, a Patron ticket is $250 and a Standard ticket is $200. Patrons will be recognized in the Sunset Affair program
