Penguins are known to be the most dapper animals of the animal kingdom; not even humans have it in them to wear a tuxedo all the time.
You do, however, have the opportunity to have a formal evening with these well-dressed animals at the eighth annual Nauti Nite Fundraiser. The event raises money for the WAVE Foundation, which helps with conservation efforts for sea animals and other penguins, and provides funding for youth education programs focused on aquatic life.
And in playing with the oceanic theme, guests are directed to dress in festive blue cocktail attire.
The event will play host to a silent auction with unlimited food and drinks on hand. Ages 21 and over. 7:30 p.m.-midnight. $70; $50 young professional. Newport Aquarium, 1 Aquarium Way, Newport of the Levee, Newport, Ky., 859-491-3467, wavefoundation.org.
