ZOOtoDO

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

ZOOtoDO is a chic, black-tie and tennis shoes affair that's strictly for the grown-ups. With over 50 of the area's finest restaurants and caterers and live music on multiple stages, ZOOtoDO spotlights the sophisticated side of The Toledo Zoo.

This year, the event's tag line is "Party With A Purpose." ZOOtoDO is more than a social event, it also provides essential funding for the continued development of community outreach and on-site educational opportunities, as well as state-of-the-art care and exhibits for the animals housed at the zoo. 

One hundred percent of the net proceeds raised from the event supports daily operations.
