The Atlanta zoo plans to host an event for more than 200 chronically ill and disabled children and their families.
The invited guests for the second annual Zoo Atlanta Dreamnight are patients at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Dreamnight was started in 1996 at the Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands. It is now observed in more than 30 countries.
Highlights of Zoo Atlanta's event will include zoo tours, keeper talks and animal feedings, rides and entertainment and a scavenger hunt.
The private event is sponsored by Josh Powell and 21 Reasons to Give Foundation.
