Bringing the Power
of Play to Clinton

Who We Are

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old;
we grow old because we stop playing.”

-George Bernard Shaw

Our Roots

Here at Friends of The Town of Clinton Parks and Events Inc., we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is big dream and a little support. Since our founding in 2022, we have been focused one goal: help revitalize our Town’s parks.

We are committed to raising funds and awareness to support the creation of inclusive multigenerational outdoor recreation spaces in our beautiful community. We believe every child – regardless of physical, mental or emotional ability – deserves the chance to swing, spin, and let their imaginations run wild.

Tranquilli Financial Advisor Sponsorship

Huge news for our little booster club and the Halstead Street Playground Project! Former Town resident and current Clinton business owner, Louis Tranquilli, is our first official playground sponsor. His company, Tranquilli Financial Advisor, has promised to match our resident fundraising efforts up to $25,000!
 
How does the sponsorship work? Each $5,000 raised by residents through our booster club’s fundraisers will unlock a matching $5,000 donation from Tranquilli Financial Advisor.
 
Ready for even better news? Thanks to the efforts of some spunky young runners and their sponsors who participated in June’s Color Fun Run, we’ve already raised our first $5,000. In combination with Tranquilli Financial Advisor’s matching sponsorship, that brings us to $10,000 – and another step closer to helping the Town if Clinton build first the certified inclusive park in Hunterdon County!
 
Our next event: Pints for the Park is set for Friday, Aug. 26 at Sunken Silo with live music from Clinton’s own, The Cave Crickets, and deep-sea delicacies from Metropolitan Sea Food. Join us for a night of friendship and fundraising. Together we can unlock that second $5,000!
 
Cheers to you, Lou, for your generosity and efforts to leave Clinton a little better than you found it.
