Huge thanks go to the generous sponsors and donors who have made it possible to present this exclusive collection at Ball Carnaval to support the new, multi-million dollar Tropical Rainforest Building at Roger Williams Park Zoo, for the conservation of the world's tropical rainforest and its endangered species.

This year’s gala honors the Brazilian polo team and all proceeds raised through the auction will directly benefit the work of the Rhode Island Zoological Society and Roger Williams Park Zoo.
