Celebrating 10 Years
of Activating Parks

Friends of Grand Rapids Parks invites you to be part of the greenest bash of the season, and this year we are going neon green! The Green Gala is a one-of-a-kind fundraiser advancing the work of Friends of Grand Rapids Parks to protect, enhance, and expand our city’s parks, public spaces, and urban forest. Guests will experience signature cocktails, a great silent auction, and the fresh beats and laser lights from DJ AJ Paschka while enjoying the scenic backdrop of Reservoir Park. The Green Gala has pioneered a new era of green events that produce less waste, repurpose materials, and offset negative impacts on the environment.


Tickets are for event attendance. For sponsorship opportunities,
