My husband and I attended an awesome fundraising event a few weeks ago for the Akron Zoo, Summer Safari. I was honored to serve as the Committee Chair for the past two years of this event.
We want to thank the many local restaurants, businesses, and caterers; and greatly appreciate those that donated their time, money, food and talent to make it possible for non-profit organizations like the Akron Zoo to raise money. To keep improving the Akron Zoo, we need funding from both public and private resources. These resources will allow the zoo to continue the same exceptional care for its animals and to keep adding new exhibits, animals, education programs and services. I hope you join my husband and I in supporting the zoo at events like Summer Safari and in voting "for" Issue 3 on Nov. 5. This is not a new tax and is vital to keep the zoo growing and thriving.
