ONE day to give as ONE

On May 5, 2015, Friends of City Park is participating in GiveNOLA Day, the community’s one-day, online giving event. It is 24 hours of unprecedented giving, and it’s your chance to make a real difference, right here in our community.

On May 5th we'll be celebrationg and welcoming your credit card donations - at the Carousel and new Ladybug Roller Coaster. For a minimun donation of $10/person (a credit cards donation) you get to ride as many times as you'd like, a drink and a piece of pizza from the all new Parker's Pizza cafe in Carousel Gardens.

Join us from 5pm to 10pm!

5pm – 7:30pm :ride the rides and get your face painted! 

7:30pm – 10pm: will be geared to a younger late night crowd with a DJ and Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo.

Gifts given that day will receive a portion of a $200,000 Lagniappe Fund, plus have a chance at additional awards and prizes – making your dollar go further.
In an effort to maximize our dollars for Lark in the Park, all funds raised through GiveNOLA Day will go towards the Park's endowment fund.
