Deeper Dive: Bite of the Amazon

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 8 p.m. 2016

Belle Isle’s Albert Kahn-designed aquarium is one of the most magical places in the city, but it always seems to need some work. It is 112 years old, after all. Sometimes the beautiful blue-green glass ceiling tiles need replacing, other times outdated tanks need updating. Whatever work needs done, the Belle Isle Conservancy manages to craft an exciting event to raise funds all the while ensuring people enjoy this precious gem. This evening of fundraising comes with a special guest of honor: the red-bellied piranha of the Amazon River. Guests will get up close and personal with the beautiful fish plus hors d’oeuvres and drinks.

Price: $40
