Last month we would have gathered with supporters at our first fundraiser of the year:
Pour at the Park in South Park
. For the health and safety of our patrons and vendors, the pandemic forced us to cancel this annual event. This was disappointing to the Parks Foundation but it also meant that local brewers, distillers and restaurants missed an opportunity to introduce you to the beverages and food they work so hard to produce. Many of these vendors love the parks as much as our patrons and we are grateful to you all. We urge you to patronize these vendors when the opportunity arises. They are listed below.
Please stay tuned for news about our Pour at the Park in North Park, scheduled for Friday, September 11.
Again, we'd like to be moving forward with this event but are closely monitoring the situation.
We hope during the pandemic you came to realize how valuable your parks are to everyone's health and well being. The vital funds we've raised in the past from these events help us improve, conserve and restore your parks all year long. Canceling was our only option, so we are now exploring alternative ways to replace these funds. If you would like to support your parks, please consider a 100% tax-deductible donation.
We are always grateful for your support.
