The ball is scheduled for Saturday, June 19 at the Los Angeles Zoo. Is there a dressy air? Yes. Visiting with the animals after hours? Indeed. Star sightings? For sure.
The comedian is, in fact, a trustee for the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA). She's also, as of 2006, "Ambassador to the Animals of the City of Los Angeles," so named by Mayor Villaigorosa.
The co-chairs of the event are worth a nod as well. Sir Elton John? On there. So is Sandra Bullock. Jay Leno and Alex Trebeck, too. And Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Feinstein.
Tickets are $1000 each. Money raised goes to various zoo projects and programs supported by GLAZA.
