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.

“Summer TEAse” a GClubR Happy Hour Tea Party

In the spring of 2009, Gina Jackson, Marketing Director of the Fort Lauderdale History Center, approached Renée Quinn for help in raising awareness and dollars.   The result was Not Your Traditional Tea Party.

On Friday, July 17, 2009 from 4pm to 7pm at the New River Inn, the  Fort Lauderdale History Center and the GClub at Riverwalk Trust hosted a Happy Hour Tea Party. Guests enjoyed traditional tea and treats, wine sprizters, mar-TEA-ni’s, toasted coconut coladas,  chocolates, salt water taffy, raffle prizes and more!

Set with GClub’s beautiful pink parasols, pink roses in teapots and pink & white linens…the room glowed.  Both indoor and outdoor seating provided a cool break from the summer heat.  Island City Bistro provided a variety of fresh brewed iced and hot teas…and Kilwin’s blended their favorite toasted coconut  ice cream with Bacardi Dark Rum.  Finlandia Vodka served an orange blossom mar-TEA-ni and there was a long island style iced tea on the rocks!

The GClub, created by Renée Quinn, is Riverwalk Trust’s new membership level that was developed to provide dedicated dollars to the Riverwalk Park & Marina.  Renée connected GClub Partners to create this unique event: Premier Beverage, The Narrative Events, Island City Bistro, Kilwins Las Olas and Himmarshee Bar & Grill,  We thank them for helping GClub fun-raise for one of our favorite Riverwalk Park  partners  –  The Fort Lauderdale History Center…  Go GClub, Go Riverwalk, Go Giving.

Press Coverage was provided by Sun Sentinel’s  Society Scene (Cover and feature story)  and Riverwalk Trust’s Go Riverwalk magazine.

The result:  Fun, awareness, park activation and more dollars raised than ever before at a summer event for the History Center!

Summer TEAse Team:  Renée Quinn for QuinnProQuo, Viviane Morrison for the Narrative Events, Sue Molnar for the City of Fort Lauderdale and Gina Jackson for the Fort Lauderdale History Center.
