Thanks to the more than 200 people who joined us at the Champlin Mann 14 Theater for the Party in the Parking(lot)! Not only were we able gather in person for the first time since 2019, but we also raised more than $33,000 dollars to support sarcoma cancer awareness and research.
Attendees enjoyed a variety of activities, including a red carpet and photo booth, games, sponsor and resource booths, entertainment, and a drive-in movie. Many also made luminaries in honor or memory of loved ones impacted by sarcoma cancers.
“I enjoyed my time meeting people in person that I’ve met virtually volunteering for RIS, and my husband enjoyed meeting and talking with other sarcoma survivors”Danielle Gerk, first-time Party in the Park attendee.
To kick off the evening’s programming, our Executive Director, Janelle Calhoun, spoke about Rein in Sarcoma’s successes from the past year and the importance of the 21st annual Party in the Park. You can watch the video below:
Thanks to the many volunteers who dedicated their time and talents to ensuring a successful event!
Join us for next year’s Party in the Park on July 25, 2022 back at Como Park!
