Typically at the start of the park season, the Conservancy holds its annual fundraising luncheon, Spring into Summer. While guests are not able to be together this year, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is creatively offering a virtual, reimagined event that will showcase much of the fun and fanfare that the vibrant in-person event is known for.
This virtual event will be held online via the digital platform, OneCause. From here, guests will be able to make donations, access a basket raffle and a wine pull, flip through this year’s program book, and watch program videos. In the desire to highlight everyone’s bright and colorful hats and/or bowties, which have become a fashion statement for Olmsted spirit, a special social media contest, Hats off to Olmsted, will launch on May 18th and culminate with the final program on May 21st.
