Join friends of Garrett's Light for the Family, Music and Kite Festival to benefit Quiet Waters Park

Date:  Saturday, October 3rd (Noon to 5 PM)

Location:  Festivities will be held at the Quiet Waters Park Amphitheater Stage (600 Quiet Waters Park Road, Annapolis, MD 21403)

Price:  $10/adult. Children Free (17 & under)

Register/Donate: Click on link at the top of this blog (The registration and donation process will take you to the secure payment site, PayPal. The Friends of Quiet Waters Park is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible. Registration can also be done the day of the event, but head count is important, so we are encouraging as much pre-registration as possible.)

Details:  A kickoff benefit aimed at families and open to the entire community is planned for October 3 at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis. Festivities will include live music by four bands, kite flying, story-telling, silent auction, Earth preservation presentations and activities that you can walk up and enjoy. The silent auction will include items such as Beach House Getaway at the Outer Banks, 4 days/3 nights at Wisp Ski Mountain, Hot Air Balloon Ride, Loews Hotel package, Glow Salon pampering and gift basket, Round of Golf for 4 at Chartwell Country Club, Photo Session, sport tickets, and more. Food and beverage (no alcohol) will be available for purchase. Families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the festivities. Event kites will be available for purchase at the park for $5. Park entrance fees will be waived for event participants. All net proceeds will go directly to the Friends of Quiet Waters Park for the costs of building and maintaining a new park attraction, Garrett’s Reading Garden.

Garrett’s Light is a fund that was established in memory of Garrett Wall Feldmann, is folding its efforts into those of the Friends of Quiet Waters Park to create a new area at the park, Garrett's Reading Garden, for families to enjoy quiet reading time together in a natural and healthy environment. Garrett’s garden will enhance the peaceful and educational benefits of the established native plant garden, nature trails, and soon-to-be-built butterfly garden. In addition to the garden, Garrett's Light hopes to spark an interest in creating nature programs and outdoor experiences for children of all ages visiting Quiet Waters Park. Fittingly, next year’s event honoring Garrett’s memory will be part of the park’s Earth Day celebration on April 24, 2010. While Garrett’s Light is largely supported by individual donors, AOL, 103WRNR, Mercedes-Benz, and M&T Bank are supporting Garrett’s Light as corporate sponsors. Thank you also to the following individuals and organizations for their In-kind donations and services: PMG Direct, Leslie and Mike Minsch, Brion Harris and Premier Planning Group, Premium Promotions, Inc., Chartwell Country Club, Deirdre King Photography, Fiberplus, Inc., Glow Salon Day Spa and Café, Grand Rental Station, Local ROLLCALL, Loews Annapolis Hotel and Mixed Greens. The group continues to seek additional local and national businesses to support its mission.

Garrett Feldmann lived near Quiet Waters during most of his short life, April 2007 to December 2008. Garrett died in his sleep, and, as of August 2009, no definitive cause has yet been identified. His parents, Lee and Kathryn Feldmann of Severna Park, and his older brothers, Shane and Carter, want to remember Garrett as he was, full of delight and curiosity in the world around him.
