The pinnacle of summer elegance can be visualized by picturing one place: The Hamptons. Elegant mansions with sprawling lawns and cool reflecting pools outlined by green topiaries create the perfect setting for the ultimate in summer entertainment. Striped tents shield party-goers from the sun as they dine on New England delicacies at tables centered by huge clusters of pink and blue hydrangeas. The landscape is stylish, sparkling clean and incredibly chic.

Breeze into the Leopard Lounge, where inside you'll find a silent auction filled with treasures and pleasures sure to catch your eye. Pose for the photographers in a one-of-a-kind setting framed by the zoo's lions and tigers. Stroll through the garden while enjoying a cocktail made with a shot of merriment and a spritz of glamour. Topiaries in the shape of feline friends line the pathway leading to a celebration of summer, friends, great food and our beautiful zoo.

Panels of beautifully patterned fabric breeze from the edges of the tent, calling for guests to abandon their chaises and make their way for a decadent feast. Servers bustle under opulent, sparkling chandeliers to pour champagne at tables awash in summer flowers of pink, blue and green. The room glows with generous candlelight as the sun sets, with guests dancing the cool summer night away to positively fabulous music.

A fabulous party and a glamorous evening all for one chic night. Lincoln Park Zoo welcomed "The Great Catsby" on July 13, 2012.
