Party for the Parks: A Gala by the Pool
Thu, April 27, 2017, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM CDT
Better Parks for Galveston is hosting its first major benefit, “A Gala by the Pool”, and we need your help. In celebration of the collaborative effort of building Galveston’s first community pool, this spring event will be held in Lasker Park. We are honoring Moody Foundation trustees Ross Moody, Elle Moody and Frances Moody-Dahlberg, and Richard and Sue Anderson for their major financial backing of this important community project. We are inviting you to be a sponsor of our 2017 spring benefit. Your financial contributions will not only support new park programs, but encourage other donors to follow your lead.
Better Parks for Galveston inaugural project supported a broad and diverse community partnership focused on bringing to life the long held dream of a community pool for Galveston Island. Multiple city entities such as the Parks and Recreation Department, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and the City of Galveston’s Families, Children and Youth Board, along with foundations, our local school district, local businesses and individual donors joined forces to collectively raise 4.1 million for pool construction costs. The value of our parks, and success of such collaboration, is exemplified by the building of the pool, which is actively underway in Lasker Park. Now that Better Parks for Galveston and its strong community partnerships are in existence, it is available to continue providing awareness of, and needed enrichment support to our island’s public parks and recreation facilities.
