There is so much work to be done in parks across the city, which is why I’m organizing a fundraising and volunteer team for Plaid Palooza on November 4th. At Plaid Palooza, I will work with 200 volunteers at Historic Fourth Ward Park on projects that will complete part of the park’s master plan. Meanwhile, the funds my team and I raise will benefit Park Pride programs that make it possible for neighbors to bring great parks to life in their communities.
