Venture into the world of venom at PNC ZOOtoDO presented by Skylight Financial Group at the Toledo Zoo on Friday, June 21 from 6 p.m. – midnight! The 2019 edition of the Party with a Purpose is dangerously decadent…Brace yourself for forked tongues, fierce fangs and a fabulous FUNdraiser!
New this year is The Venom Lounge sponsored by Lexus of Toledo, an exclusive VIP experience supported by Mancy’s Restaurant Group, featuring special access to the newly remodeled ProMedica Museum of Natural History, exquisite small bites from Mancy’s Steaks, Mancy’s Bluewater and Mancy’s Italian, along with a full bar selection and additional entertainment. Individual tickets for this experience are $225 and includes ZOOtoDO admission following the Venom Lounge (open 5:30-7:15 p.m.). VIP tickets are very limited.
Each year ZOOtoDO highlights the house-specialties of more than 50 restaurants and caterers and sells out at 2,000 guests. The evening of adults-only fun begins at 6 p.m. with complimentary champagne, train rides around the five-acre multi-species Africa! exhibit and the first morsels of tasty treats. At 7:30 p.m., the historic side of the Zoo opens for guests to enjoy 40+ more samples of gourmet delicacies from area favorite restaurants and chefs, including new participants Inside the Five Brewing and Basil Pizza & Wine Bar. The evening also features live music on multiple stages and full service cash bars, serving specialty drinks, beer and wine.
Your Zoo calls it “a party with a purpose” because the net proceeds provide essential funding to continue growing the Zoo’s mission of caring for animals and conserving the natural world.
