The Phoenix Zoo announced today it is reaching out to the local community to encourage participation in their $20 million dollar capital campaign, A World Class Zoo for a World Class City. With $14.7 million raised so far, the Zoo has surpassed the halfway mark of its $20 million goal and feels that now is the time to involve community residents who enjoy the Zoo and would like to see it enhanced and updated. These opportunities for community involvement include the sale of retail items on Zoo grounds such as wristbands, koala plush stuffed animals, souvenir cups at the concession stands and donation boxes placed throughout the Zoo. Support can also be shown online at the Zoo's website, www.phoenixzoo.org.
For more information on this effort, call (602) 914-4346.
