Margaret T. Hance Park’s Vital Fall Fundraiser Secures Date For 2020. The pursuit to elevate the largest centralized park into an urban and connecting landscape leans heavily on the annual event’s yield of sponsorship and donation dollars.
The Hance Park Conservancy, the community-based organization charged with promoting and advocating for Margaret T. Hance Park (Hance Park) in Downtown Phoenix today announced that the fifth annual signature fundraising event, Noche en Blanco, will proceed on the evening of October 24, 2020.
Fashioned after Paris’ Dîner en Blanc, Noche en Blanco is Downtown Phoenix’s version of the global dinner party phenomenon where guests are encouraged to wear white and convene at an iconic local space. In the four previous iterations of Noche en Blanco, that iconic local space has been Hance Park, however, the ongoing pressures of COVID-19 have necessitated a move to a live fundraising television production.
While streaming the event, patrons are encouraged to host mini Noche en Blanco dinner parties at their offsite locations while adhering to the latest public health recommendations at the time of the event.
The production will feature performances from a variety of local and cultural groups with acts to be announced as they are secured.
For the development and execution of the Hance Park Master Plan, a core component of the Conservancy is to raise non-public funds benefiting the park. As such, donations are open now!
