This event is a Gainesville Woman’s Club signature project, which is intended to facilitate the club’s commitment to the community and to the children of Alachua County. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the GAP Foundation for park improvement at the Northeast 31st Avenue Park. The park is in need of substantial upgrades to its playground, tennis and basketball courts, and the development of new features such as picnic pavilions and walking paths. Research shows that children benefit greatly from outdoor play and being in nature. Parks give children the opportunity to appreciate and interact with the natural world around them and to play outside.
