Join us for the Third Annual Picnic in the Park – Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Olbrich Park overlooking the beautiful Lake Monona!

Stafford Rosenbaum LLP is a proud sponsor of the Madison Parks Foundation and the upcoming Picnic in the Park. Stafford and the Madison Parks Foundation both trace their roots to the same man, the venerable John Olin. Olin served as the first president of the Madison Parks and Pleasure Drives Association, the predecessor organization to the Foundation. Created in the 1890’s, the MPPDA was a private venture by dedicated citizens to preserve the natural spaces around Madison for all to enjoy. Today, Stafford attorney Kyle Engelke serves the Foundation as its Secretary and joined the board after learning about the Foundation when the firm sponsored an event celebrating the Foundation’s 120-year anniversary.

“There really is no substitute to the beautiful natural spaces we are able to enjoy throughout our city every single day. It’s inspiring to think about how 120 years ago, a small group of civic-minded individuals got together to envision how they could make their City a better place for all, and for generations to come. Today, Madison Parks Foundation renews this legacy with Picnic in the Park – an event to celebrate our history, our parks, and a vision for our city’s future. On October 13th, I look forward to raising a glass with you to toast the legacy of Madison’s parks!”

With the annual Picnic in the Park, we “step back in time” to celebrate not only the beautiful spaces throughout our city but the remarkable history behind the creation of each park. The event has moved from Tenney Park in its inaugural year, to Hoyt Park last year, and now Olbrich Park as we step back in time with a roaring 1920’s theme. Partner celebrity chefs provide an era-inspired feast and the event features live music along with an update on Madison Parks Foundation’s latest initiatives. Live music will be provided by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra and a post-dinner performance from singer Gerri DiMaggio for some swanky speakeasy fun. This is truly Madison’s most unique event, we promise you a memorable evening in support of a great cause!
