Bronx River Alliance Upstream Soirée

Bronx River Alliance Upstream Soirée

Dear BRAC patrons and friends,

You know that BRAC would not be the effective harborer of creative interpretations of environmental justice if we did not learn and gain so much from our partner and parent organization—the Bronx River Alliance (BxRA). BxRA supports and protects every step and effort we all make to do good in and for the Bronx River and the residents of the Bronx. Now it is time for all of us to come out and support BxRA and enjoy a wonderful evening of celebration for their 11th Anniversary event at the new banquette room of the Bronx Zoo. 

Please consider carefully what really means something to you and what you can do to help. Join me in feeling good about supporting a GREAT cause and great success that is the Bronx River Alliance. Click the link HERE to purchase your ticket(s) and I’ll see you there on October 2nd!

Best Regards,

Gail Nathan
BRAC Executive Director
