Reid Park Zoo's Annual Fundraiser on Friday

The 25th annual ZOOcson fundraiser for the Reid Park Zoo will be held this Friday, Oct. 12, 6-9 p.m. This year's event is inspired by the arrival of the American alligator and will feature Tucson’s favorite restaurants, auctions, animal ambassador presentations, and live music.

Presented by Casino Del Sol, this Friday's event will feature bidding for a chance to win a rare Zoo experience, such as Keeper for a Day. Tickets can be purchased online, and the price includes food at all restaurant stations and two drink tickets. To prepare for ZOOcson, the Zoo will close at noon on Friday.
