Longtime metro Atlanta parks advocates Park Pride will hold their annual spring social and fundraiser Tuesday, May 3rd from 6 PM to 9 PM. The event will feature cycling and walking stops at four BeltLine eateries – The Mercury, Rathbun’s, Richards’ Southern Fried, and Venkman’s. Co-sponsor Orpheus Brewery will provide samples of its products and a brewery tour, and there’s a silent auction and more.
Your $35 ticketed donation will support an organization that has made generous grants to every one of Virginia-Highland’s parks. Sign up early and you can be part of a bike ride with the city’s Chief Bicycle Officer, Becky Katz. Yes, there really is such an office in Atlanta government, and Becky holds it. She and Rebecca Serna of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition are two major reasons the city has made the cycling progress it has. Go meet Becky and support Park Pride; you’ll enjoy doing both.
