The PARK Project began its volunteer recruitment efforts on July 31, at Thea Pizzeria & Café, located at 1951 NW Seventh Ave.
Thea, a lovely restaurant located in the beautiful University of Miami Life Science and Technology Park, generously donated drinks and food samplings for the crowd assembled there who were anxious to talk to Marly Quinones about becoming more involved with PARK.
PARK Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission of inspiring people worldwide to PARK (Perform Acts of Random Kindness).
The purpose of the event was to share information about PARK Project and to inspire service-driven people to leave their mark and PARK for the foundation’s award-winning event, the 5k PARK Fest, which takes place Veteran’s Day weekend in the City of Doral. The 5k PARK Fest recently earned third place in the Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge for their revolutionary approach to FUNdraising and empowering non-profit organizations to better mobilize their network of supporters.
Among the many enjoying the evening were Marly Quinones, PARK founder/CEO; Thea Goldman, Thea Pizzeria owner; Jonathan Rasch, InterMedia Touch; Kate Swain, Coral Gables Woman’s Club and Junior Orange Bowl Committee; William Hunter, Wexford Science Technolody; and Daniella Veras and Marianna Monroy, PARK Project volunteers.
