Crystal Gala was the Best Ever!

 

The Crystal Gala on May 19 was a wonderful success! More than 340 area residents and corporate and community leaders joined us to honor philanthropist Jeffrey Z. Slavin. Overall, the event raised a record of more than $158,000 to support the Park and launch a scholarship and transportation fund.
