The event served both as a family-friendly experience and an opportunity to foster philanthropy and community, a press release from the zoo said.

“It was evident that it wasn’t just about having fun but also about supporting something you care about,” Tim Morrow, San Antonio Zoo president and CEO said. “This year’s kids did an amazing job raising money to help support the zoo, and we hope it inspires others of all ages to get involved and help the community any way they can.”

Children who participated in the Jungle Contest raised over $43,000 to contribute to the zoo’s care and conservation efforts, the release said.

Overall, the zoo ball raised $124,000.

The children who were named king and queen will get to ride on a San Antonio Zoo Fiesta-themed float. Their pictures will also be displayed at their favorite animal habitat at the zoo.

Runner-ups will also have their photos displayed, while fundraisers were eligible for other unique zoo prizes.
