Ready to spend a night with dolphins, fireworks, live music, cocktails, and bites from top Chicago restaurants? BLU, the Shedd Aquarium’s annual fundraiser hosted by the Auxiliary Board is happening on Saturday July 25th, and it is one of the best events of the summer.

A group of WCBC-ers attended BLU last year and we had the best time. We saw the aquatic show, met a turtle, tried bites from top Chicago restaurants, and watched fireworks burst over the Chicago skyline. The best part is that in addition to having a wonderful evening, you are supporting a great cause. The Shedd is home to 32,000 animals, and the money raised at the event goes towards animal care, sustainability, conservation, and learning initiatives.
