It was so nice to hang with the monkeys, giraffes, sea otters and more Saturday night! And... of course, so many awesome people from work and the community!
We all came out to support the Henry Vilas Zoo for its yearly "Rock and Roar" event. We tried to wear white since we were raising money for a new Arctic addition, but we mostly just wore something warm! It was pretty fitting that the temperature was freakishly cold on a day to raise money for the polar bears.
First of all, the history of the Henry Vilas Zoo is SO MADISON. If you didn't know, it's FREE. The reason? The Vilas Family donated the land and stipulated that it always remain free and open to the public.
WISC was a proud sponsor of the event, and we had a great showing. My favorite thing? Penguin pictures (below)! One of them was also called "Crappy Feet". Potty humor is never lost on me, even when it's penguin poo.
The zoo is such a neat place! It's also incredibly fun to walk around the zoo at night. Loved the dancing, the food, the auction and of course, the photo booth!
I also had such a warm reception from people at the event, and I wanted to say thanks for all your kind words. I love it when people welcome me to Madison! It means a lot!
