Local residents are being asked to raise their glasses for the animals at Zoo Idaho.

The 21 and over only, after-hours event will feature beer tastings, chili, and music from The Kyd J Band. The money raised by the event will help to fund new animal exhibits, a new zoo entrance, and help further conservation education about Idaho’s indigenous animals.
