Marissa Ratzenberger, events supervisor for the Detroit Zoological Society, emphasizes the dual nature of the event: “When you purchase admission to Bunnyville, you are not just signing up for a great day of family-friendly fun. You are also helping those in need and providing critical support so that the DZS can give excellent care to the animals who call the Detroit Zoo and Belle Isle Nature Center home.”
