Benefit Concert Raises over $4200!

Last weekend's benefit concert was not only a fabulous night of music, but also a great fundraiser for Way Park. The generosity of attendees, along with matching funds from FWP board members and others, brought in over $4200 to help move us closer to a fully-realized park. Huge thanks to all the performers, volunteers, donors, and attendees for another wonderful community event!
