Urban Safari 2011
URBAN SAFARI 2011 - BBQ BASH
Wed June 22, 2011  6-9pm
 
Set aside Wednesday, June 22 2011 to attend the "Urban Safari and BBQ Bash" sponsored by Upham's Corner Main Street. More than just a night at the Franklin Park Zoo's Barnyard, the evening's adventure includes music, food and drink, games and prizes and a silent auction.

The Urban Safari is a fund-raiser - a chance for residents, businesses and other organizations to contribute to the growth and redevelopment of the Upham's Corner Business District.  Proceeds from the event are used to fund special projects that improve both the shoppers' and the business owners' experience in the business district.

Do you love the zoo?

You will be able to see many animals including prairie dogs, ducks, and a rare Amur Leopard, and get close to the petting animals such as sheep, goats, horses and more.

Do you love Upham's Corner?

The Urban Safari is your opportunity to get together with like-minded people who want to celebrate the Upham's Corner community and support its business district revitalization.

Upham's Corner Main Street (UCMS) is a nonprofit organization that works to support small businesses in order to create a more thriving Upham's Corner community. 

Zachary Cohen, Executive Director of UCMS is excited about the fundraiser. 

"We expect Urban Safari will draw over 200 guests and more than 50 sponsors! I think that UCMS has really begun to establish itself as a lead agent of change for neighborhood revitalization in the City of Boston.

The Urban Safari is an important annual opportunity for UCMS to step back, celebrate its successes and raise important funds so that we can continue making an impact in the year ahead."
