2024 Dinner in the Park Gala

Thank you to all who joined us on Thursday, May 2, 2024 for an enchanting evening of cocktails and dinner in the Park’s amazing spring landscape.

We had wonderful weather for this year’s gala, celebrating the spirit of service and volunteerism. Since the launch of our volunteer program in 2015, the Park has welcomed hundreds of groups to support our Landcare team, which relies on these groups to keep up with the pace of maintaining our expanding greenspaces.

This year, we were delighted to honor Senator Richard Blumenthal and his wife Cynthia Malkin Blumenthal for their years of dedicated civic service, along with our loyal corporate volunteers from Charter Communications, Henkel, KPMG, Reckson, our neighbors at the University of Connecticut, and our wonderful Main Street Garden volunteers. Together, these organizations have contributed thousands of hours of volunteer service alongside our dedicated Landcare team, helping to assure that Mill River Park remains pristine for all.
