exciting project proposals!

Immense thanks to all who helped organize, and to those who attended and/or made contributions toward, our 2016 fundraising efforts on Saturday night. The sold-out Fundraising Dinner was a night to remember; an absolutely beautiful evening filled with inspiration, sharing, warmth, laughter – and some wonderful musical and visual delights. More specifically, our deep appreciation to:

I-Park’s Volunteer Events Committee
The Development Committee
September’s Artists-in-Residence
Those Who Contributed to the Auction
Those Who Purchased Auction Items
Event Sponsors and Financial Contributors
Those Who Participated in the Live Plea
Our Guests, Including Many I-Park Fellows
Table Hosts and Those Manning the Welcome Table
The Many Volunteers Who Helped With Preparations
The Public Officials Who’ve Helped in Many Ways
I-Park’s Staff and Board of Directors
The Band, Dancers and Presenters
Our Many In-Kind Contributors
Those Professionals and Vendors Working Behind the Scenes to Make Things Happen
And thanks too to all who came out on Sunday for OPEN Studios. It was a nice turnout, the artists had a lot of great work and energy to share – and we even had a few nice surprises. We were very proud of this international group for their artistic excellence and most generous spirit!
