The Friends of Larchmont Parks, a nonprofit organization that works with the Village of Larchmont to maintain and develop local parks, raised over $50K at its trivia night event on March 28, 2019. With nearly 125 people in attendance, the event had locals engaged in a friendly trivia competition and enjoying wines and delicious nibbles from local businesses at St. Augustine’s Church in Larchmont.
The event raised funds for the development of Constitution Park, which is located next to Larchmont’s Village Hall and is adjacent to Boston Post Road commercial district. The Park serves as the community’s focal gathering point for seasonal events such as the annual art show, Light Up Larchmont and the Ragamuffin Parade.
The development of Constitution Park will cost approximately $450K, which will be funded by the Friends of Larchmont Parks via philanthropic donations and will feature design highlights such as a French-inspired promenade, an area for public concerts, a sculptor garden and children’s grove.
“We are thrilled to have raised over $300,000 towards the Constitution Park Project and are confident that with the continued support of this amazing community we will be able to reach our fundraising goal in 2019 and begin construction shortly thereafter,” said Laura Rosenthal, President of the Friends of Larchmont Parks.
