Would you recommend ZooTampa at Lowry Park?

The organizers treated the volunteers very badly,sending us into a dark room, with no chairs to seat and asking us NOT to be seeing by the customers/consumers. A young lady took from my hands a serving cup of wine that someone offered me, throwing it away and saying:"Ours guests paid a lot of money to enter this dinner and I will feed you with pizza". I have more than 15 years volunteering and this was the first time, i was treated with such of disrespect. All the lady needed to say was to say privately, I am sorry,but the wive is only for our guests, I would understand that I would said no when the wine was offered to me. I am sorry you do not have a zero star, because that is the one i will mark, I would not recommend to work there.Thanks, Mona
