Green Gala 2020
August 13, 2020 , 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
On Aug. 13, 2020, we’ll host our 9th annual Green Gala: Picnic Edition! Specially curated picnic baskets with local fare can be enjoyed with live music at Ah-Nab-Awen Park or virtually in your own backyard.
View basket menus, reserve your basket and picnic time, and see FAQs!
Though mingling might look different these days, we look forward to the opportunity to gather with like-minded neighbors who activate, steward, and advocate for our city’s parks, trees and green spaces. You’ll hear about Friends’ work this past year and what we see for the future!
Our host for the night is Adrian Butler, Grand Rapids DJ, entrepreneur, and great friend of Friends. We’ll enjoy music from an eclectic mix of local artists throughout the night, with A.B.’s awesome playlists in between.
