The Northwest Alumni Association and its Kansas City Alumni and Friends Chapter are sponsoring Bearcat Day at the Kansas City Zoo from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 1.

“The second annual Bearcat Day at the Zoo is really becoming a Northwest family tradition for the Kansas City area,” Bob Machovsky, Northwest’s director of alumni relations and annual giving, said. “This event is sponsored by our Kansas City Alumni and Friends chapter and really is their marque event for the year.
