Dear Business owner,
You are cordially invited to partner with the town of Upper Saddle River and USR Cares as they present OKTOBERFEST, a community block party, to be held at Lions Park on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 1-6 pm.
USR Cares, a newly formed community outreach group, will be the recipient of the proceeds from Sponsorships, Vendor Tables, a Raffle and Donations. USR Cares was established in 2017 as a community resource to help residents in critical situations. The board is comprised of community builders and medical professionals whose primary goal is to be a safety net for those experiencing a true health or financial crisis. With your support, USR Cares will have the resources to provide financial assistance coupled with other outreach initiatives including companionship, meals and connections to medical services to those in crisis.
Attached please find an introductory letter from USR Cares.
At Oktoberfest, an event for Upper Saddle River residents, the park will be set up like a fairground with antique tractors and fall decor. Featured will be themed streets including Health & Wellness Way, Community Lane, USR Marketplace and Family Fun Zone with vendors and games. Our USR Community and Service organizations will anchor the event with activities including a PBA Obstacle Course, Hayrides by our DPW, a USREF Family Scarecrow Contest, and much more! There will be live music, food, and beer & wine.
The entire community will be coming together to support the mission of USR Cares for a fun filled day while providing businesses like yours a unique opportunity to reach this target market.
