1st Annual Kid to Do was wild success

The first annual Kid To Do at the Dallas Zoo “Monkey See, Monkey Do” benefiting the Dallas Zoological Society on June 2, 2012 was a huge success! Following in the footsteps of its big brother Zoo To Do, Kid To Do featured approximately 20 restaurants that served kid-friendly fare along with fun, festive activities for the whole family.

Maria Martineau Plankinton and Emily Vafa teamed up to chair the event, and more than 250 Dallas families helped raise $211,000 for the Dallas Zoological Society. Honorary Chairs for the event were Jennifer and John Eagle, and Tracy and Kent Rathbun served as Honorary Restaurant Chairs.
