Waterloo Greenway Hosts Annual ‘Glow in the Park’ Fundraiser

On October 13, 2022, Waterloo Greenway Conservancy hosted over 700 guests for their annual fundraiser, Glow in the Park, raising an incredible $1.9M and counting!

These vital funds help keep Waterloo Park, and future phases of the growing 35-acre park system, flourishing and activated with free cultural events and environmental education programs that benefit nearly 500,000 community members annually.

From cocktails on the Meredith Heritage Tree Deck, to a delicious dinner provided by MML Hospitality and an intimate musical performance by Grammy Award-winning Marcus Mumford, this event was inspired by the amazing event chairs, Sabrina Brown and Jamie Chandlee, and created with the help of dozens on the Glow in the Park host committee.

Capital campaign co-chairs Chris Mattsson and Gary Farmer were also recognized for their leadership and dedication to the Waterloo Greenway project since 2015. 

Thank you to our amazing Glow in the Park sponsors for making such a magical night come to life: PNC Bank, C3 Presents, Fairmont Hotel,  Tito’s Handmade Vodka, AT&T, Siete, Austin Subaru, Austin Beer Works, LALO Tequila, MML Hospitality,  Nine Banded Whiskey, Poema Cava, Richard’s Rainwater, and Roads and Kingdoms. We truly could not do it without you!

Located in the heart of downtown Austin along a restored Waller Creek, Waterloo Park is a central hub of activity featuring more than 1.5 miles of scenic trails, thousands of native plants, imaginative playscapes, and the 5,000-capacity Moody Amphitheater. The 11-acre greenspace is a public park, restored in partnership with the City of Austin, and is open daily from 5am – 10pm for everyone to explore and enjoy.
