A fundraiser for the tiger habitat at Moorpark teaching zoo is taking place Friday.

Did you know that there’s a teaching zoo in Ventura County? It's hosting a fundraiser for a new tiger habitat.

It’s billed as a concert for cats, but it’s for humans to listen to - and raising money for a habitat for cats…very big cats…tigers, to be precise – at Moorpark College, which has a teaching zoo.

The music is courtesy of John Ondrasik from the band Five For Fighting.

He told KCLU that the fundraising concert was his wife's idea, after they used to spend time visiting the zoo as a family.

Ondrasik, who had top 40 hits with Superman (It's Not Easy), and 100 years, said: "We're gonna go out and play some songs, raise some money and have a great community experience."

The concert is Friday and ticket details are here.
