O’Reilly Family Event Center

Ball of the Wild is Friends of the Zoo’s premier summer social event. Proceeds benefit Dickerson Park Zoo’s field conservation efforts and conservation education programs for children and adults.

For 2014, we are proud to partner with our sponsors:
Platinum Sponsor, The McQueary and Krittenbrink Families
Grand Sponsor, Mayse Automotive Group
and our many zoo friends who make this event possible.

We look forward to a beautiful evening indoors and outside on the patio of the O’Reilly Family Event Center at Drury University. The entertainment will be top notch with “Party Planet,” direct to Springfield from Memphis, billed as the “best band in the midsouth”!

The attire for Ball of the Wild is summer dress or “safari chic.”
