Vote for the Zoo in Social Madness!

By Jaime Wilson, Social Media Enthusiast

The Sacramento Zoo is currently competing in the Social Madness competition put on by the Sacramento Business Journal and their parent company.

The Zoo needs your help!

Help the Sacramento Zoo garner local and national recognition by voting on the Business Journal website. Now here is the "social" part. Please share this contest with your friends, family, coworkers, Little League parents, clients - EVERYONE! And encourage them to vote for the Zoo too.

What? You want to do even more?
Standings are based on four criteria: Votes on the website, Facebook likes, Twitter followers, and Linked In followers. If you really want to jump in, here are the sites where you can like and follow the Zoo. We share deals, tips, photos of your favorite animals, breaking news, ticket giveaways and much more!

On June 18th the top 8 businesses move on to the next round. Each week half the field is eliminated until one Sacramento business moves on to the national competition.

Thank you so much for supporting the Sacramento Zoo and helping us shine in our community!
