White was right at home with the animals, including a red-tailed boa named Jacob.
White is a longtime supporter of the zoo. In fact, she knows many of the animals and staff members on a first name basis and visits there often.
She has some great memories from her 45 years of supporting the zoo.
"I remember some of the early Beastly Balls when Jimmy Stewart would ride in on the elephant, and all of the early people in those days, and it's still a great party every year," said White.
The Beastly Ball includes food from top restaurants, musical entertainment, dancing and close encounters with animals.
