Imagine prowling through a mysterious environment—it's beautiful, but danger lurks. And just as you readjust your dazzling, bejeweled mask, you hear a low growl. Looking around, you lock eyes with a jaguar. It's only for a moment, then the majestic cat melts back into the shadows, but it's a reminder how wild the world can be, and how precious these endangered creatures are. Held in the Range of the Jaguar, and followed by a late-night dance party, this masked soirée is a fundraiser for Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens.
6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 7 at the Jacksonville Zoo, Northside, $125, jacksonvillezoo.org.
