ALLEGHENY COUNTY PARKS FOUNDATION

Twilight Picnic For The Parks assembles regional supporters in an intimate atmosphere blending summer chic with rustic sophistication featuring a private performance by show business personality Lucie Arnaz. A singer, Broadway, television and film actress, Ms. Arnaz began her career on The Lucy Show, opposite her mother, Lucille Ball. Nominated for a Golden Globe, Primetime Emmy Awards, and more, Ms. Arnaz brings a cabaret masterpiece from the Great American Songbook, jazz favorites and songs inspired by the Latin roots of her father, Desi Arnaz.The luster of twilight will provide the backdrop for al fresco style cocktails and dinner that will elevate the notion of picnic fare using the finest local ingredients at their seasonal peak to create a truly memorable experience in the park.

This is the signature fundraising event to support the Allegheny County Parks Foundation. At 12,000 acres, the nine Allegheny County Parks are among the largest public parks systems in the country and see more than 20 million visitations each year. The Allegheny County Parks Foundation raises funds at events such as this to restore and improve the parks for generations to come.
