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."
