Betty White, the Little Rock Zoo's newest penguin, was in attendance along with other animal ambassadors at Wild Wines VIP Night on April 26. The first event of the two-night fundraiser was held at Cafe Africa and the Civitan Pavilion on the Zoo grounds.

Other animals -- including a red-tail hawk, a pony, a hoot owl and a milk snake -- were escorted around the event throughout the evening allowing partygoers to get an up close look and photos with some of the zoo's ambassadors. Guests also enjoyed food from local restaurants paired with wines from O'Looneys Wine and Liquor. Music was by the Rodney Block Collective.

Wild Wines is hosted by the Arkansas Zoological Foundation and benefits the Zoo.
