The big game is upon us, but why should the players get to have all of the fun?

Support the Maryland Zoo leading up to Super Bowl LVII by donating to our first-ever ZOOper Bowl Pool fundraiser. Make a donation to the Zoo today to secure your block(s) for a chance to win one of our wildly-exciting prizes, including a behind the scenes with the rhinos, a framed, custom canvas painting made by one of our talented giraffes, event VIP ticket packages, and more! Donations directly support animal care and conservation for the animals you know and love.

How It Works:

  • Each $100 donation made by a donor secures them a block, seen here. There is no limit to the number of blocks a donor can secure, but each block is $100.
  • Donations for this fundraiser will be accepted through COB, Thursday, February 9, OR until all 100 blocks are accounted for, whichever comes first.
  • Blocks will be assigned randomly and labeled with the first and last names of a donor.
  • Team scores along the X and Y axis of the grid will be assigned randomly.
  • We will publish the final pool grid on this webpage Friday, February 10 before noon. Additionally, each participant will receive a copy of the final pool grid by email. Please note, the name that you use to make your donation will appear on the grid that is posted on our website and distributed via email to the participants.

How You Win:

Compare your numbers to the score at the conclusion of each quarter. When the last number (i.e. the 0 and 7 of a score of 20 to 17) of each team’s score matches your numbers (the number and the team HAVE to match), you win that quarter’s prize!
