With the temperatures getting warmer, Greenwich residents are enjoying more time outdoors in the Town's fabulous parks, beaches, green
spaces, and various trails. "The Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Foundation welcomes the usage of our facilities, which
empower residents to get outside and engage and re-charge. We invite residents to join our movement to lead a new wave of investment in our parks and recreation system," said Director of Parks and Recreation Joseph Siciliano.
The Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Foundation is a private non-profit organization to support and enhance our Town's heritage of
parks and open spaces. This tax-exempt entity is designed to supplement public funding with the private donations and volunteer
efforts of our community.
The Foundation is dedicated to the transformative experiences our beautiful outdoors affords us, including capital improvements, park
development and maintenance, landscape improvements, playground, and picnic area upgrades, beautification projects, special community
events, and youth scholarships for recreational programs.
As the Town has experienced an increase in usage, the Foundation would like to launch a campaign to engage the Greenwich community to raise funds to support its mission and activities. The kick-off will take place on Wednesday, May 5, from 5-7 pm at Veronica Beard, 252
Greenwich Avenue. Come shop just in time for Mother's Day and to refresh your spring wardrobe.
Blending cool, classic & chic styles, Veronica Beard features the latest trends in women's designer clothing.
The Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Foundation will receive 10% of sales through Saturday, May 8, in this shop-for-a-cause event,
which is also being sponsored by Greenwich Magazine. "Veronica Beard's spring collection is about celebrating 'A Place In the Sun,' so we are
thrilled to support the Parks and Recreation Foundation's mission of enhancing outdoor experiences," said Erin Babiak, General Manager of
Veronica Beard Greenwich.
