9th Annual “An Upstream Soiree”

The Bronx River Alliance celebrated the revitalization of the Bronx River Wednesday, September 17, 2014 with delicious hors d’oeuvres, a buffet supper, live music, wine and beer, and a silent auction at the Bronx Zoo. At the pre-party at  Zoo Center, patrons caught a glimpse of the new “Amazing Monitors” exhibit. Jose the Beaver joined us for photographs, and we toasted the honorees with a signature cocktail: The Bronx
