Holiday Builders is the Title Sponsor of Safari Under the Stars, an annual fundraiser for the Brevard Zoo.

Brevard Zoo

Holiday Builders is proud to support the Brevard Zoo. This coming Saturday night the Zoo hosts Safari Under the Stars, an annual fundraiser. Holiday Builders is the presenting sponsor. In fact, Holiday Builders has sponsored Safari Under the Stars since 2010. Why is the Brevard Zoo so important to Holiday Builders?

The Brevard Zoo opened its doors in March 1994. A dedicated group of Brevard community leaders raised $3.5 million and recruited more than 16,000 volunteers to construct the largest community-built zoo in the world. Holiday Builders' CEO Bruce Assam and his family became involved in the Zoo's commitment to conservation and education. Since Holiday Builders' corporate offices are based in Brevard County, Mr. Assam established an on-going community partnership between Holiday Builders and the zoo. Not only does Holiday Builders support the zoo with financial contributions, our employees frequently volunteer their time. Past efforts include making oyster beds for the Indian River Lagoon and building a flamingo habitat.
