I received this cute e-mail today. Great idea! I love Baby Showers.
You're invited to a dolphin baby shower!
June 23 to July 1
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Give your best wishes to Piquet and her calf—in person!
Baby showers are about providing mom and newborn with all the things they need. For a tax-deductible gift of $20 to Shedd's annual fund and the purchase of a Total Experience Pass or Shedd Pass, you can be among the first to see the little dolphin before his public debut. Shedd's annual fund supports the aquarium's superior animal care, including breeding efforts like this, as well as our education, community access, and conservation and research programs.
The special visit with mom and calf is limited to a small group of people in a private setting, so you'll have great views and a chance to chat with one of the marine mammal trainers as you learn about the critical milestones in the calf's development. You'll even assist the calf with his next milestone: getting accustomed to guests.
For the well-being of Piquet and her calf, the number of visits will be very limited. You can make your $20 donation to Shedd's annual fund and select a time while purchasing your Total Experience Pass or Shedd Pass on Ticketmaster's website. While we recommend reservations for this special event be made in advance through Ticketmaster, donations and reservations for the baby shower can be made on site, subject to availability.
Purchase your Total Experience Pass in advance to meet the newest addition to the Shedd family.
