Rave Review


Birthdaylamontfamilyweb"I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to help coordinate Oscar's 4th birthday party at the Zoo! We love Franklin Park Zoo and it was so great to have a place of our own there to celebrate that was affordable and accommodating, and you made it so easy to plan.

I wanted to express again, that you were such a pleasure to work with - thorough, organized, professional, extremely courteous and very helpful! I'm sure we will be back again in the future, as will our friends!"

With gratitude,
Chrissy Lamont (and family)
