(Salt Lake City, UT) — Utah’s Hogle Zoo is pleased to host fellow ZAP recipients for a ZAP appreciation day.
Dozens of ZAP recipients from around Salt Lake County will be at the Zoo, Wednesday, Oct. 1, 10a – 4p with information booths, crafts, demonstrations and performances.
Utah’s Hogle Zoo also offered 5,000 tickets, in-kind donation, as a thank you for past ZAP support and to encourage renewal of ZAP which will be on ballots this upcoming election.
In 1997, voters passed the Zoo, Arts & Parks Program – a 1/10th of 1% sales tax (one penny out of every $10 spent) that helps support and enhance local Zoo, arts, parks and recreation programs throughout Salt Lake County. This November 4, Salt Lake county voters will have another opportunity to keep a good thing going, by renewing their ZAP program for the same 1/10th of 1% sales tax.
Thanks to citizen support, ZAP has:
- Supported over 160 arts, cultural and zoological organizations; 13 parks and trails and 17 recreation centers.
- Funded cultural activities that more than 7 million people participate in annually.
- Made it possible for nearly 4 million free admissions to be granted for ZAP-funded events each year.
“ZAP provides critical assistance to so many worthy organizations that enhance the quality of life in our community,” said Craig Dinsmore, Zoo Executive Director. “We are happy to showcase some of them this Wednesday at Utah’s Hogle Zoo.”
Salt Lake County voters are encouraged to come gather information on ZAP and its impact on the community, as it appears on the ballot in the November, 2014 election.
