Today: 'Swing in the Park' fundraiser

 

A pedestrian bridge named for the late City Councilman Bill Conwell, and a garden enhancing the area around the Water Tower were completed this year in Atherton's Holbrook-Palmer Park, amenities made possible through funds raised by the town's annual "Swing in the Park" event.

This year, organizers of the fundraiser, set for Sunday, Sept. 19, hope to raise money to help pay for future projects such as the rejuvenation of the park's historic Carriage House, and a new informal amphitheatre near the children's play area.

Swing in the Park, sponsored by the Atherton Dames and the Holbrook-Palmer Park Foundation, will enliven the park from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, the swing courtesy of the 16-piece Unicorns Dance Band.

Activities for kids will include games, clown appearances, and a performance of the Happy Birds Parrot Show. A barbecue picnic will be presented by Jesse Cool's CoolEatz Catering.

There will be a live auction, a silent auction, and a raffle.

"Here is an opportunity for the community to join in celebration and support our jewel of a park," said Denise Kupperman of the Atherton Dames.

Reservations are highly recommended, Ms. Kupperman said. Open seating is $75 per person; $15 for children 2 to 11; and free for children under 2. Tickets for $700 are available for tables of 10.

Visit Atherton Dames or call 234-8447 to reserve tickets or learn more about the event.
