A warm but breezy evening in the Longfellow Gardens was the place to be on Thursday, June 22. More than 150 parks supporters attended the first ever Sunset in the Parks, a pop-up picnic fundraiser. Groups of 2 to 20 organized their picnics and joined MPF board, staff and volunteers to toast the award winning park system. DJ SuperBrush provided a cool musical backdrop and a variety of lawn games provided some friendly competition (and amusement). By the end of the night, more than $10,000 was raised in support of the People for Parks Fund, thank you. By the sounds of it, there is a strong desire to do this again in 2024. We hope to see you there!
Thank you to our 2023 Sunset sponsors: Barr Engineering, Lowry Hill Liquors, and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. This evening would not have been possible without your support. Be sure to check out highlights from the event below!
