2009 Urban Garden Party: ALL ACCESS

2009 Urban Garden Party
Join us for the Mattress Factory's biggest fundraiser of the year, the Urban Garden Party: ALL ACCESS – chaired by Rich & Cindy Engler – Friday, June 12th, 2009!  Each year, the Urban Garden Party becomes the talk of the town as more than 1,000 attendees turn out to help support the museum's mission in a festive, celebratory atmosphere.

The rumors abound. Did Keith Richards really receive a blood transfusion before jumping on a Swiss stage in 1973? Did Van Halen really insist that all brown M&Ms be removed from their backstage bowl? Did Guns & Roses honestly request a hot tub filled with models? This is your change to go behind the curtain and backstage as the truth, fiction and mystery of the rock-n-roll velvet rope are exposed.
