Hey everyone, Jessica here with a Tampa Bay area events update from Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo....

The Lowry Park Zoo would like to invite you to Make Some Birdies & show your support for them too, by participating in the 7th annual Charity Golf Classic at the exclusive Old Memorial Golf Club in Tampa.  This event, scheduled for Monday, May 10 benefits the more than 2,000 animals living at the Zoo.

Join in a relaxing day of golf, starting with gifts and giveaways!  Next, enjoy lunch by Chef Fernando Rodriguez of Old Memorial at event check-in at 10:30AM.  Browse the aution and raffle items, practive at the driving range, sink a few at the putting green or get up close with one of the Zoo's critters with Animal Ambassadors from the Zoo.  Then, at 12:00 Noon with a shotgun start, begin your day of golf with drinks and snacks on the course.

In addition to the tournament are a few contests happening throughout the day... With the "Hole-in-one," take a chance to see if you could win a car courtesy of Reeves Import Motorcars.  With "Let the Pros Do It," a professional long driver will sell chances to go the distance for you and your team.  All proceeds benefit the Zoo, but the drive only benefits you!  Plus... longest putt, straightest drive, and closest to the hole.
