Food, fun and some of the best outfits you've ever seen, all at the annual ZootoDo. People showed up in heir cheetah prints and reptile tails to support the Toledo Zoo.
"We're very happy to be there," Bob Mesteller a zoo supporter said. "Especially with these tails on it's a lot of fun."
Some took it a step further. Kathleen and Douglas Andrews are avid ZootoDo attendants. Each year they take the black tie and tennis shoes requirement seriously.
"The theme is walk-a-bout so I tried to incorporate Kangaroos, alligators and crocodiles," Kathleen said.
She actually spent the last 6 weeks hand sewing her and her husband's outfits for one night.
"I've always wore the tennis shoes but these boots are really comfortable, so this [outfit] is my favorite," Douglas said.
But it's more that just creative clothing and great local food. The event also raises nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
All of the net proceeds go right back to the Toledo Zoo.
"Everything from the people that work the front gates to the conservation efforts," Jeff Sailer, Executive Director of the Toledo Zoo, said.
