30 Jun Auction & Party for Lincoln Park – Thank You!
The 2022 Auction & Party for Lincoln Park was the Lincoln Park Conservancy’s most successful fundraising event, ever! Through your generosity, together we raised over $250,000 in support of the Lincoln Park Conservancy’s work in 2022 and beyond. As a point of comparison, the 2019 gala netted around $176,000 and 2018’s event brought in $140,000, making this year’s results a significant achievement. Thank you to everyone who participated to support the Conservancy and the Park! Special thanks go to our donors, sponsors and event committee members including committee Chair Kelly Small, for making the event such a success.
The financial achievement of the Auction & Party provides the momentum to carry out our important work in Lincoln Park through the remainder of 2022. Stay tuned as we complete the comprehensive restoration of North Pond this summer and fall, and undertake repairs and improvements to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, Lincoln Monument & Gardens, Lincoln Park Conservatory and Sunshine Playscape. Meanwhile, our stewardship and programming staff and volunteers will continue to care for—and inspire others to care for—Chicago’s largest and most visited park.
Whether you are a longtime supporter or the Auction was your first interaction with us, we hope you will stay connected to the Conservancy throughout the year.
