Frederick Law Olmsted Gala
The theme of this year’s formal event, celebrating our spectacular park system, is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” featuring cocktails and a silent auction at 6, followed by a gourmet sit-down dinner catered by Rich Products at 7. There will be tents, there will be stars, and there will be carriage rides, all in a beautiful park overlooking the Niagara River and Lake Erie. After dinner, dance to Buffalo’s own All-Star Band, while awaiting a major surprise announcement. All proceeds benefit the Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. 6 to midnight, Friday, July 22, at Front Park in Buffalo. Tickets: $175; call Otis Glover at 838-1249, or visit www.bfloparks.org.
