The Lubbock Zoo is scheduled to start construction in August, but the project needs more funding to help bring more animals like these and educational outreach programs to the kids of Lubbock.
That's why the zoo is asking you to bet your chances on fun in a "Casino Night" fundraiser. For $18, you get to try your hand at Blackjack, Texas Hold'em, the Money Wheel and much more. All proceeds will benefit the Lubbock Zoo.
The event starts at 7pm Saturday and lasts until midnight. It's at the American Windmill Museum at 19th Street and Mackenzie Park. For more information, call 535-8543.
