July 2021 - Updates from the Forever Parks Foundation
Hello Friends of the Forever Parks Foundation,

We've been busy at the Forever Parks Foundation making huge progress towards bringing Pearland its first all inclusive playground. Read more below!

Pearland's first all inclusive playground - fundraising update!
As of today, we are now ninety percent complete in reaching our fundraising target. With the support and leadership of State Representative Ed Thompson, we were recently awarded a $750,000 grant through the Texas Park and Wildlife Department.

We now need just $100,000 to achieve our goal. We are aiming to close this gap by September 1st so we can break ground on the playground in January 2022. We know that Pearland can help support this - for a $500 sponsorship your business or family can be permanently recognized on the Wall of Recognition at the entrance to the playground. Donate today! Thank you to everyone who has already generously donated during the month of July. We appreciate you and your generosity will make a huge impact on our community! Donors since June 16 include:

  • Daniel Matt - Reece, Ryann & Dallas Matt (Friend Level)
  • Cody Blalock - Emma and Munchie Blalock (Friend Level)
  • Helen Beckman
Pints for Parks - Thank you!
The rain held off for the day and we had gorgeous weather for our inaugural Pints for Parks event this past Saturday!

Thank you to everyone who supported our event “pre-Pints” by purchasing raffle tickets, participating in early bird silent auction bidding, purchasing wristbands, and spreading the word about our event to friends and family.

For those that were able to make it to Vallensons’ Brewing Company on Saturday - we hope you had a great time! We enjoyed visiting with so many of our Foundation supporters and having the opportunity to share our mission with those who were learning about us for the first time.

Our event success would not have been possible without the generosity of local businesses who donated items for our silent auction and to our sponsors. We would also like to recognize Vallensons' Brewing Company for their continued support of the Foundation and their partnership in this event.  

Please support these local businesses that support our Pearland community!
