Calling all trailblazers! We invite you to join us for the 2022 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.]

GO BIG. ON PURPOSE.

For too long, people have lived outside the natural world becoming less and less human and more detached from themselves, each other, and the wild. Two years ago our big lands boomed. As the built environment shuttered, the natural world rolled out an oversized welcome mat and people took to the wide open at record rates. We hit a eureka moment and witnessed collectively how nature nourishes.

We’re ready to activate our acres to position the region as a vibrant and healthy place to live, learn, work, and play. We protect and enhance the cornerstone of our parks—trails that enrich lifestyles through activity, wellness, and connection. Great Parks is going all in on trails. We have reserved a front row seat for you to learn about our priority trail investments and the details of our featured projects.

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

EVENT DETAILS

RUSTIC CHIC?
The Root Ball is a gala without suits and gowns. We choose comfort over formality. Check out this Pinterest board.

GETTING THERE
As a conservation agency, Great Parks encourages carpooling.

Parking is very limited in MadTree Brewing’s lot. Crossroads Church across Madison Road from MadTree is generously allowing Root Ball guests free use of their lot for the evening. Crosswalks are located at the Madison Road and Vandercar Way intersection, and further south at the pedestrian bridge.

GETTING IN
Your name will be held at the door.

PROCEEDS BENEFIT…
Great Parks Forever, the philanthropic partner for Great Parks of Hamilton County, translates an early conservation promise into everyday experiences and lasting legacies.
