Our Biggest Party Ever! Party for the Parks Recap
The 9th annual Party for the Parks was a WILD success! Thank you to all of our attendees, sponsors, volunteers, staff, and performers. Together we raised more than $165,000, with all of the proceeds directly benefiting more than twenty-five Charleston parks!
This year’s Party for the Parks was our biggest event ever. We sold out all tickets a month in advance (unprecedented) and we surpassed our previous fundraising record by more than $40,000! The “Call of the Wild” theme encouraged attendees to get in touch with their inner wild side and don outfits with a hybrid of punk rock attitudes and animal instincts.
Animal prints, neon, mohawks, and leather abounded and attendees enjoyed some of the best food, drinks and entertainment Charleston has to offer.
The raffle and auction were definite highlights of the party! This year’s raffle item was a Customizable Electric Precedent donated by Golf Cars of Charleston— retailing at over $8,500. Party for the Parks also featured more than forty silent auction packages for attendees, including vacation getaways, golf experiences, spa packages, and more. We are pleased to report that the raffle and the auction helped bring in more than $55,000 for The Conservancy.
This was also a tremendous year for Party for the Parks sponsorships, and we would like to extend a special thanks to all of the local businesses who supported the event. Thank you for making Party for the Parks possible and helping us celebrate our mission!
