Retired Research Animal Adoption & Benefit, Best Dam Bike Ride, Nsumba Orphanage Fundraiser

By Eric S. Peterson
Posted // June 23,2010 - This summer weekend offers unique events for the active citizen. Take part in a benefit for an organization helping to get retired research cats adopted, and maybe bring home a furry new pal. Also, don’t miss a bicycling event to pedal against MS, or check out a beer-fueled fundraiser for an orphanage in Uganda at Squatters Brewery.
