Green Gala 2012
The greenest bash of the season returns to Grand Rapids. Friends of Grand Rapids Parks invites you to be part of the Green Gala, a one-of-a-kind fundraiser advancing the work of protecting, enhancing, and expanding our city's parks and public spaces. Guests experience live music, locally-sourced food, signature green cocktails, and Michigan beverages while enjoying the beauty of the Grand River and Fish Ladder Park. The Green Gala will be both fun and informative while pioneering a new era of green events that produce less waste, repurpose materials, and offset negative impacts on the environment.
Green Gala guests will arrive at 7 p.m. to enjoy live music, a complimentary "green" cocktail, and delicious, locally-sourced food during Michigan's harvest season that are sure to amaze. Guests will mingle, capture the event at our photo booth, or take a stroll through Fish Ladder Park, all while supporting parks and public spaces in our city. Friends of Grand Rapids Parks will also announce new initiatives to green our city parks and make public spaces more fun and inviting for everyone.
