HINDSIGHT IS 2020. FORESIGHT IS NOW (OR NEVER)

Calling all dreammakers, groundbreakers, and trailblazers! We invite you to join us for the 2021 Great Parks Forever Root Ball. This is a gala you won’t want to miss. Here you will trade your best black tie for your community blue sky over cocktails, courses, and conversation. [Attire is rustic chic.]

THE FUTURE IS WIDE OPEN. ARE YOU COMING?

At Great Parks Forever, our cause is at a crossroads. We’ve been people-watching and discovered an “open” secret. We hit a eureka moment and witnessed collectively how nature nourishes. Never before has our community been better connected, free to engage, full of wonder, and sustainably aware. These insights are central to our mission and ripe for harnessing. So we set to work with an empathetic listening and learning platform and translated findings into a comprehensive future plan.

The 2021 Root Ball will accelerate the activities and benefits of our new path forward: THE GREAT WIDE OPEN. We have reserved a front row seat for you to learn about our priority community investment areas and the details of our near-term featured project: Bass Island.

So assemble your fellow ambitious altruists as we consider the essential and the everlasting! See you there.
