Green Gala: Come Out & Play!
Green Gala: Come Out & Play!

Thursday, August 25, 7:00pm - 11:00pm, Fish Ladder Park & PlanteMoran/Christman Bldg.

The greenest bash of the season is coming to Grand Rapids this August, and Friends of Grand Rapids Parks wants you to be part of it. The Green Gala is a one of a kind fundraiser event for Friends of Grand Rapids Parks to advance our mission to protect, enhance and expand parks and public spaces in the city.

Green Gala guests will arrive at 7 PM to enjoy live music, a complimentary green cocktail or local brew and delicious, locally sourced appetizers. Guests can mingle, listen to great live music, capture their event highlights at our playground photo booth, or just enjoy a stroll along the Riverwalk Pathways and through Fish Ladder Park, all while supporting parks and public spaces in our city.

Friends of Grand Rapids Parks will also announce the coming Parks Alive campaign for 2012 to green our City parks and make parks more fun and inviting for everyone. Guests will have the first opportunity to sponsor exciting new park upgrades and make a lasting impact on Grand Rapids' landscape.
