Kroger and Scott’s shared the results of their 2013 Zoo Week promotion today by delivering a check for $67,620 to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.  

“Kroger and Scott’s are outstanding community partners,” said Zoo Director Jim Anderson.  “We are grateful for their longstanding support of the zoo.”

The donation represents 3% of sales on Zoo Day May 15, as well as donations by customers who “voted” among three zoo animals by donating $1 at the checkout May 5-18.

Bugara the tiger, with 6,661 votes, unseated incumbent Jelani the giraffe, who had 5,769 votes. Fishbone the sea lion received 5,168 votes. 

Kroger and Scott’s created Zoo Day in 1993.  To date, the stores have donated $1,530,181 to the zoo.
