Special Event Teaser

Picnic success

Our first fundraiser picnic went off without a hitch. The icing on the cake was that it turned out to be a beautiful evening! The performance by Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan was nothing short of terrific. Don’t they look sharp, as well? Rick Drazner was also a great auctioneer and we had fun listening to him play up the virtues of tabouleh. (He also did it with more style than anyone I’ve ever encountered.) Meanwhile, I ate the tabouleh and it was every bit as tasty as he suggested. The proceeds from all of the baskets help us to keep programs free of cost to local schools.

At the end of the night, everyone went home happy and stuffed with delicious food from restaurants including: the Arboretum Club, Big Bowl, Le Titi de Paris, Sunset Foods, and TGI Fridays.

Thanks to everyone for making the evening a success. We couldn’t have pulled off the event without the support and the hard work of our dedicated volunteers and the Friends of the Park.
