You don't have to go to Las Vegas for an exciting night of boxing, gourmet dining, drinks and more. Puttin' on the Ritz, sponsored by Husch Blackwell, is an annual fundraiser for the Zoological Society of Milwaukee held at Potawatomi Hotel and Casino.

The formal event starts with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. There are dozens of amazing items for you to bid on during the live and silent auctions.

Then get ready for the main event. Some of the best amateur boxers in the country, arranged by the Future Olympian Boxing Association, duke it out in three-round bouts. The boxing is sponsored by Master Z's and the boxing ring is sponsored by Bridgewood Advisors.

New this year, enjoy the evening with the VIP Man Cave Experience. The new category includes a private gaming table, lounge seating and tableside bar service.

Last year's event raised more than $180,000 for the Zoological Society and its support of the Milwaukee County Zoo.
