The Cavs and the Monsters have teamed up again this season with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to support Assists for a Cause. For every assist made by the Cavs and Monsters this season, Tito’s will donate $10 to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to help secure a future for wildlife at home and around the world. Throughout the past 6 seasons, Tito’s has graciously donated over $127,000 to local Cleveland non-profit organizations through this Assist for a Cause program alongside these two teams.

“We’re honored to take part in the Assists for a Cause program for the seventh year in a row, supporting an incredible and deserving community organization. Over the past year, we’ve seen the great impact that Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has had in wildlife conservation, and we look forward to seeing that impact continue to grow. We hope the Cavs and Monsters have lots of assists this season to help raise funds and awareness for such an important cause.

Trip Cobb, Field Sales Manager at Tito’s Handmade Vodka

"We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with the Cavs, Monsters and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. This season, the funds generated by the Assists for a Cause program will aid our efforts to secure a future for wildlife by supporting the Andean Bear Conservation Alliance, which works to protect Andean bears and their critically important habitats.”

Brian M. Zimmerman, Cleveland Metroparks CEO
