Bring your pack to Reid Park Zoo for the must-attend social event of the fall, ZOOcson. This year's gala is inspired by the beautiful and fierce African wild dog pack. This species, also known as painted dogs, is known for its colorful and decorative coat and incredible collaborative nature. The gala features Tucson's favorite restaurants, auctions, animal ambassador presentations, and live music by Jovert! Enjoy a specialty cocktail as you outbid your friends for a chance to win amazing experiences during the live auction with Call to Auction and Emcee Edmund Marquez. Tickets include food at all restaurant stations and 2 drink tickets (please note this is a 21 and older event).
