Banana Ball

Reporting:  Rabbit Zielke

Sophie the Fennec Fox

Sophie is a fennec fox and one of the animals that has found a new home at the Chattanooga Zoo.

Things will definitely be swinging at the 11th annual Banana Ball for the Chattanooga Zoo.  This event dresses up the zoo for an evening of fine food and live entertainment.  This year live music is provided by The Swinging Medallions.  Keeping to the swinging theme, guests will be treated to a performance by aerial artist Amy Powell.

Proceeds from the Banana Ball will help fund the newest addition planned for the Chattanooga zoo, a desert and jungle exhibit.  When Zoo Director Darde Long visited the studio for this interview she brought along the ambassador to the planned addition, Sophie the fennec fox.

The Banana Ball will be October 1, 2011 from 7:30 to 10:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the zoo at 423.697.1339.
