A team of Friends of Patterson Park worked together during Amplify Austin, and raised a total of $5,705. We brought together six business sponsors to provide matching funds, five individual fundraisers, a match from Austin Parks Foundation, and neighbors and friends who supported our campaign. We are filled with joy and gratitude at the generous outpouring of support!
Nature’s Treasures, Erin Tassoulas Design + Build, Nicole Cooper -NBC Realty, Thunderbird Coffee, Urban Patchwork and Franklin Barbecue each provided matching funds to the first $1,750 donated. Nature’s Treasures provided $500 in matching funds, and the other neighborhood-based businesses $250.
Cynthia Soliz, Jane O’Brien, Kate West and Susan Potter, park lovers who live in Mueller, and Wilshire Wood, and Cherrywood each had individual fundraising campaigns, as did the Cap City Cobra baseball team, which practices at the park.
Austin Parks Foundation
Our fiscal sponsor APF generously matched 25% of the first $2,500 raised. This totals $625, making the final amount raised $5,705.
We have a lot planned for the next few weeks! Next Saturday, March 10, we will be planting a new grove of trees at the park, and our annual Easter egg hunt is planned for March 31. We also plan to submit an application in April for funding to for the first part of our Neighborhood Park Plan, new circular monkey bars and seating at the playground.

Ice cream parties are so much fun, and we had a blast kicking off Amplify at the park on Thursday.
