What: Urban Wild Bridge Bash

Where: Living Bridge at Memorial Park

The scoop: More than 220 community-driven young Houstonians got their glow on in support of Memorial Park Conservancy at the fifth annual Urban Wild Bridge Bash, Glow in the Park, presented by Ernst & Young.

Members and guests bundled up and braved the chilly temperatures on Memorial Park’s Living Bridge to enjoy great food, drinks, and music al fresco. Highlights included a stellar soundtrack by DJ John Tran; passed appetizers by Churrascos Catering; drinks from Deep Eddy Vodka, Montrose Cheese & Wine, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Topo Chico USA and Tenfold Coffee; sweet treats from Georges et Lulu; photos with Smilebooth Texas; and door prizes. 

The event garnered more than $30,000 for The Conservancy. Funds raised will help continue the day-to-day care and maintenance of Memorial Park. Urban Wild is a group of emerging leaders who actively support the work of Memorial Park Conservancy through membership and service.

Who: Jeffrey Yates, Alexis and Steven Caruselle, Robert Erni, Jacob and Brandi Lisenbe, Grace and Mark Salvie, Megan and Luke Hotze, Ashley McKenney, John Shaeffer, Maryam and Will Rahman, Maine Goodfellow, and Kate Harfield.
