Birds of a Feather, Party Together: Roughly 1,000 partygoers flocked to the National Aviary on the North Side on Saturday night for a fire-themed tropical party, where guests enjoyed aerialists, fire performers, two live bird shows, complimentary massages, and #SEENselfies with birds of all kinds, from chubby penguins to colorful macaws.
It's For the Birds: "Tonight is about inspiring respect of nature through the celebration of birds," said Cheryl Tracy, managing director and chief operating officer. The aviary supports conservation efforts, as well as breeding and reintroduction programs of endangered species back into the wild. Added event chair Jane Dixon, "Each one of these birds has a different personality. They are so much fun to be around, it's amazing to be a part of this great cause."
