For several years, friends and family have asked for information on nonprofit organizations to support, join, or receive services. My homeschool organization has held several Friends & Family Nights at Carousel Gardens, and the adults have just as much fun as the children. Last year, I had the idea to combine both ideas and offer an adult-only night in Carousel Gardens to benefit local nonprofit organizations. Time to Play was created!
Visit our website to learn about the variety of necessary nonprofit organizations providing excellent services across the city. Purchase tickets in support of one or more of the organizations. Visit the organization and sponsor tables for the first 90 minutes of the event, then have fun with old and new friends! Food and drinks, including alcoholic beverages, will be available for purchase in the park.
