BINGHAMTON, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – Several non-profit organizations in the Greater Binghamton Area are rising to the challenge of creating the tastiest animal-themed treat for the 2023 Ross Park Zoo Sundae Safari on Saturday, June 10th from 5-7 p.m.

Teams from Fairview Recovery Services, Faith in Action Volunteers, Greater Opportunities of Broome & Chenango, Inc., Life Choices Center and Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network will set up at animal habitats throughout the zoo to dish up their creations based on the animals around them.
