Gulf Breeze Zoo has partnered with Toys for Tots to assist in providing Christmas gifts for children in need in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties.
In addition to providing $3,000 worth of toys, the Zoo offered free admission to its Nov. 23 ZooLights event with the donation of an appropriate toy to Toys For Tots; resulting in more than 850 toys being collected. The fun filled night included local Marines greeting guests, visits from Santa Claus and the Chick-fil-A Cow, train rides and the unveiling of more than 10,000 new lights that were added for this year’s festivities. ZooLights continues throughout the month of December. For additional event dates and times, visit the website, www.gulfbreezezoo.org.
