Team Up. Raise Funds. Have Fun. Transform Parks!

We invite you to #GetYourPlaidOn!

Sign up to volunteer on Saturday, November 4th, to help complete a much-needed planting project at Historic Fourth Ward Park and help raise funds for Park Pride's programs that support communities and parks throughout Atlanta. OR donate to an individual or team to help us reach our $40,000 goal.

Plaid Palooza is Park Pride‚Äôs fall-and-plaid-themed volunteer extravaganza. This endeavor will positively transform a section of Historic Fourth Ward Park and raise funds for Park Pride's programs that support communities and parks throughout the entire city. We will complete this project while wearing a ridiculous amount of plaid, and celebrate our accomplishments with a "plaid-tastic" party following a morning of hard work!

On November 4th, we will gather at the very popular Historic Fourth Ward Park to help complete many unfinished parts of the park and clear areas overrun with invasive plants. We will transform these areas into beautiful, ecologically-sound green spaces by planting a variety of plants to control erosion, support wildlife, and help complete part of the Master Plan for the park.

Join us - we need YOU! Give some much-needed love to Historic Fourth Ward Park, help Park Pride raise $40,000 to support local communities and parks across Atlanta, and celebrate with fun activities and a picnic in the park. #GetYourPlaidOn!

Get started! Follow these three steps:

  • Click on "Create a Fundraising Page" at the top of the page to register for the event and set up your personal fundraising page (everyone is required to raise a minimum of $150 for this event, even if you're on a team - see below for more information).
  • Check your email for your registration confirmation and helpful  instructions for next steps.
  • And last, but not least, tell a friend! Make a team or ask if they will support your efforts to improve Atlanta's parks.

Can I just volunteer (and not raise money)?

The Plaid Palooza campaign takes the place of what would be an exclusive and expensive fundraising gala. So, instead of purchasing a super-spendy ticket for a party that doesn't directly help parks, fundraising is required to participate in this mission-focused event. 

To support your fundraising efforts, we're providing each participant with a personal campaign website and many resources, including fundraising tips, guides, and templates.  All participants (11 years and older) must raise a minimum of $150 to participate in the volunteer project and celebration.
