If you live in Mill Valley and ever leave your house, chances are pretty good that you interact in some way with the vast array of programs, parks, landmarks and open spaces that fall under the umbrella Mill Valley Parks and Recreation programs.

From soccer, baseball, lacrosse and football teams playing on sports fields and residents of all ages using the community center pool and fitness center to vital community gathering points like Downtown Plaza and the community gardens, the presence of parks and recreation is ubiquitous.

With that in mind, the Mill Valley Friends of Parks and Recreation works with the city to ensure that Mill Valley’s fields, recreation programs and facilities continue to be a first-class experience. Recent projects the organization has helped fund include the Skate Park renovation, improvements at the Mill Valley Golf Course, landscaping outside the Community Center, the new Community Garden annex, the Dog Park Agility Course, a scholarship matching program and more sports field renovations.

In an effort to raise money towards that mission, the organization is hosting a fundraiser at the Mill Valley Community Center on Thursday, February 6. The event, which includes cocktails, dinner, auctions and special guest performers. 100% of funds raised will go towards Parks and Recreation projects.
