We’re excited for Summer Solstice 2023!


Summer Solstice is our annual wear white party and our largest fundraiser of the year! This special event is held under the stars on the Parkway at the William B. Pond Recreation Area. Participants will enjoy:

  • A farm-to-fork gourmet dinner from Bennett’s American Cooking
  • Local wine and craft beer
  • A silent auction
  • An exclusive live auction
  • Music provided by members of the Rio Band
  • The opportunity to make new friends!

The evening will conclude with a special Fund-in-Need with auctioneer extraordinaire Freddie Silveria of FSA Auctions that will directly benefit programs on the American River Parkway.


All of the evening’s festivities will be hosted by Tamara Berg with KCRA 3.


Mark your calendars for June 24 from 6-9:30 p.m. at William B. Pond Recreation Area.
