GET YOUR TICKET FOR Fall Fundraiser at the Franklin 9/24, 6p-10p

  -- SOLD OUT --

What most people don't realize about not-for-profits is that we subsist not only on donations and grants, but purchases of memberships, swag, and event tickets.


We only have one big fundraiser per year to cover our insurance costs so that we may ensure the Reservoir is open more often than the City can offer on its own. Your support attending our event or donating in lieu of attendance makes everything we do possible. Please join us for an evening of food & fun!
