Thank you to everyone who made Park After Dark 2019 such a success – our sponsors, our silent auction donors, our volunteers and, most of all, our guests whose bonhomie and generosity truly made it a night to remember.
The evening kicked off with cocktails on the patio of the historic Great Falls tavern and was followed by a buffet dinner, music, and a short program where we bid Park Superintendent Kevin Brandt farewell after 23 years at the C&O Canal. A Fund-A-Need paddle auction raised close to $40,000 for the Park’s towpath resurfacing project and our silent auction raised $15,400. The evening ended with a bonfire and a night hike to Great Falls Overlook. Overall, the event raised over $175,000 in programmatic support for the C&O Canal Trust’s in-Park programs.
