ZOOtoDO Fundraiser on Friday, June 19

Posted: Tuesday, June 2, 2015 by: Andi Norman | Category: Events


It is time for the Toledo Zoo’s annual black tie & tennis shoes affair, PNC ZOOtoDO presented by Mass Mutual Northwest Ohio. Help the Zoo celebrate the newly renovated Aquarium by making a splash at the region’s premier social event for the adult crowd Friday, June 19 from 6 p.m. to midnight.

Each year, the Zoo’s biggest fundraiser, PNC ZOOtoDO, attracts more than 50 restaurants and caterers with nearly 2,000 guests. During the evening, ticket holders can mingle throughout the Zoo grounds, including the all new Aquarium, while enjoying gourmet food samples from some the area’s favorite restaurants and chefs along with live music.

The elegant evening of grown-up fun begins at 6 p.m. with the pre-party, including free champagne and train rides, in the Arctic Encounter & Africa! overlook. Then at 7:30 p.m., guests travel to the historic side of the Zoo and continue the progressive bite-sized feast. The Aquarium will be open from 8 p.m. -10:30 p.m. for guests to enjoy the world beneath the waves.

We call it “party with a purpose” because the net proceeds provide essential funding for many of the Zoo’s community and educational programs, plus state-of-the-art care and exhibits for the animals. Successful events like PNC ZOOtoDO help ensure that kids of all ages can enjoy one of Toledo’s historic treasures for generations to come.

PNC ZOOtoDo is presented by Mass Mutual Northwest Ohio with additional sponsorship from Lexus of Toledo, Toledo Refining Company, Hollywood Casino and media sponsors Cumulus Toledo, Lamar, 13abc and The Blade. Additional support for PNC ZOOtoDO provided by Sea Nettle Sponsors: American Harvest, Telesystem, Fifth Third Bank, Glazer, Kroger, Al Peake & Sons Food Service, McAlear Group, NBS Commercial Interiors, Newfax Corporation, Owens Corning, RG Dezigns, The Andersons, Toledo Tent & Party Rental, Valley Plastics Company Yark Automotive Group, Yuengling, Ice Creations and Rudolph Libbe Inc.
