This year, BLU, the Shedd Aquarium Auxiliary Board's signature party with a purpose, will also be Chicago's largest Zero Waste event of the year!
Join us for an evening of Out of the BLU experiences and special animal encounters. Dine, drink, and dance on Shedd's lakeside terrace while helping to protect our blue planet!
As a Zero Waste event, BLU aims to decrease harmful debris that wind up in our waterways and negatively impacts the amazing animals that call our oceans, rivers, and lakes home.
Every year Shedd Aquarium welcomes 2 million guests for unforgettable encounters with 32,000 animals from the world’s aquatic environments. But Shedd is more than a destination. Our scientists are saving endangered species and their habitats. Our animal care experts rescue and rehabilitate wildlife in need, across the country and around the world.
For those who may not be able to attend BLU, participating in this fundraiser is a great way to show your support and help us reach our goal of $30,000 raised through this platform by July 27. Every donation makes a difference! You can also show your support by using the hashtag #SheddBLU on Twitter or Instagram and your photo will be streamed on this site!
