“Dream in Green” Gala for the Olmsted Linear Park Alliance in Druid Hills!

Olmsted Linear Park Alliance Gala 2009 in Druid Hills, Atlanta, GA

Come out and party with your Druid Hills neighbors and surrounding communities for the 2009 Olmsted Linear Park Alliance (OLPA) Gala this Sunday, February 22 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.! All funds raised will go directly to support the Olmsted Parks which we all know and love as the string of green spaces, large trees, and playgrounds along Ponce de Leon Avenue stretching across the Atlanta and Decatur city lines. A ton of progress and restoration has been accomplished along this stretch n the past few years thanks to a major capital campaign, so let’s keep up the fantastic work!

This year’s festivities will take place at the Fernbank Natural History Museum (directions & map here!) and will include:

  • Exclusive catering
  • Swinging jazz band
  • Live & silent auctions with fine art, photgraphy, vacation getaways, fine wines, airline tickets, and more!
  • IMAX film with special movie screening

Tickets are $100 and can be purchased through online through the  Olmsted Linear Park Alliance or by calling 404.377.5361. You can also email OLPA at olpa.atl@att.net!

Oh yes, I also happen to know one of the artist’s who has two pieces to be auctioned off on Sunday. Here’s a preview of these two pieces:

He’s my dad, Rod Pittam, and I’m pretty proud of him. He’s been supporting Druid Hills with his artwork for many years and you can check out his portfolio here at www.PittamAssociates.com (a shameless plug for one’s talented parents is acceptable, right? 🙂 )
