News ItemZooniversity Voted “Best At Home Birthday Party”
Mar 6, 2006 –
Zooniversity, a Dallas-based traveling wildlife education company, has been named “Best At Home Birthday Party” by Collin County Kids Family Choice Awards.
Readers of the Collin County Kids newspaper and website (www.collincountykids.com) voted for what they considered to be the “best” service companies or retail establishments for area families and the results were published in the February/March issue of the publication.
“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s eyes sparkle as they meet an animal face-to-face that they’ve only seen in picture books,” said Allison Blankenship, owner of Zooniversity. “We are honored that Collin County parents and kids have enjoyed our birthday programs and voted for us.”
