Last week the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy celebrated a physically-distant but socially-connected fundraiser, #BeingApartTogether, that will provide new and special ways for guests to experience the riverfront.
#BeingApartTogether was a celebration of the important role Detroit Riverfront parks play in the community and will provide participants with an opportunity to help support the essential work that the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy does to maintain a safe, clean, beautiful riverfront for all.
Supporters received a package curated in partnership with Detroit’s own City Bird that is filled with limited-edition riverfront items, locally-sourced gifts and unique activities for outdoor fun that can be enjoyed from the comfort of their own backyard or during a visit to the riverfront. There will be something for the whole family inside, including a special riverfront throw blanket, a #BeingApartTogether kite, a limited edition enamel camping mug, a Detroit Riverfront knit cap, a DIY kaleidoscope kit, a watercolor postcard set, a grab bag of Detroit- themed items and more!
The collection of items will be available for purchase through this fall, making it the perfect holiday gift for loved ones. The first round of boxes quickly sold out, but the Conservancy just made a second round of boxes available that it anticipates will sell out as well. The curated boxes are available for purchase at detroitriverfront.org/BeingApartTogether.
