GClub Happy Hour ~ Planterpalooza II

Motivate | Participate | Activate

Join us Tuesday, September 28th at 6pm  for great networking at Tarpon Bend on Second Street in the Historic District of Downtown Fort Lauderdale.

With the help of LB Class XXVIII, Riverwalk Trust’s GClub successfully installed  25 beautiful potted planters along the Riverwalk Park with BCIP grant funding from the City of Fort Laudersale.  Riverwalk Trust, committed to our Park,  is proud of the efforts by our GClub membership and community that raised over $25,000 and in-kind donations to make this happen.

Let’s celebrate our success!  Join our GClub team to get the latest scoop on our Potted Planter project and Adopt-a-Planter program. Learn about Riverwalk Trust’s newest membership levels!

Your GClub Chairs,
Renée Quinn, Ginny Miller & Bob Dugan
and our Project Coordinator, Genia Duncan Ellis

Our Goal:
The GClub is Riverwalk Trust’s way to promote our work with park enhancements and advocacy. It is also a way to raise funds, apply for grants and obtain matching dollars for continued plans outlined and overseen by the Master Plan & Projects committee. Funds raised by the GClub are dedicated to and administered through the Master Plan and Projects committee for @Riverwalk Programming and other park projects. Riverwalk Trust now has a dedicated team known as “GClubRs” to promote and support our park. We look forward to seeing how we can get everyone involved and be part of this exciting initiative. If you are interested in supporting our mission…join now!

Riverwalk Trust Membership…add GClub!

The GClub at Riverwalk Trust offers three levels of enhanced membership to support our park initiatives:

~ GClub Trustee Membership

~ GClub Supporter Membership

~ GClub 100 Membership

Anyone can join our GClub Membership for a minimum annual contribution of $200, which includes Riverwalk Trust’s signature Riverwalk 100 membership. Existing Riverwalk Supporter members may upgrade to the GClub membership for a $250 annual contribution. We will be hosting monthly GClub Mixers starting spring.

The GClub Trustee Membership is our premier membership level. Riverwalk Trustee level members, Past Riverwalk Trust Chairs and Tribute Honorees received an invitation to join an inaugural group of founding trustee members. For an additional $500 annual contribution, existing Riverwalk Trustee level members will become a GClub Trustee. Joining at an annual $1000 contribution, new members will receive the Riverwalk Trustee level membership benefits in addition to GClub Trustee membership.  Our Trustee mixer will be held at a member’s home in the fall.

Friends of the GClub is our Facebook Initiative (with over 200 friends and counting) to keep everyone up to date on the latest news and accomplishments of The GClub at Riverwalk Trust. Although no membership is required, we encourage donations to support our GClub initiatives.

WE DID IT…Phase one of our Potted Planter project was completed in February 2010. Our inaugural members and sponsors made this idea a reality. Join now and become a Friend of the GClub. You may email us at GClub@GoRiverwalk.com if you have questions or comments.

An Evening with Paula Deen

You’ll love this evening with Paula Deen. Paula is a self-made success story who learned the secrets of Southern cooking from her grandmother. Newly divorced with only $200 to her name, Paula and her two sons moved to Savannah. There she started her own catering business, The Bag Lady, where she prepared fresh lunches to sell to downtown. Her specialties (chicken pot pies, barbecue sandwiches, lasagna, and banana pudding) quickly became the talk of the town.

In 1990, Paula opened her own restaurant, The Lady and Sons, which could seat 42 customers. In 1995 she relocated to downtown Savannah, where The Lady and Sons has been ever since. The Lady and Sons has gathered accolades from critics and media alike. The most important honor for Paula was when the food writer for USA Today named The Lady and Sons “Most Memorable Meal of the Year for 1999.” Paula’s business continues to flourish with a series of successful cookbooks.

MENU – A buffet of Paula’s recipes will be served.

FOCUS – This evening will benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
