Rebuilding Community: Annual Celebration & Fundraiser


THANK YOU to everyone who joined us and gave so generously at our Rebuilding Community Celebration and Fundraiser! We had a wonderful time and are so grateful for your support!

If you missed the event or didn’t get a chance to make a gift during the program, you can still make a gift here.

Thank you for your support of Third Place Commons and the LFP Farmers Market!

Annual Celebration & Fundraiser 

Saturday, March 5
5:00 – 6:15 PM

Purchase Tickets Here

$30 per person
$50 per pair


Join us for our virtual celebration when we gather with friends to laugh together, visit, and most importantly, rebuild community.

We all miss our Commons Community, so we’ll have social time, of course! Plus, we’ll enjoy some great Commons music, a bit of “trivial” fun, and an amazing, featured speaker, Eric Liu, co-founder of Citizen University and Civic Saturdays (full bio below).

Community Rooms Are Back! 
When you buy your tickets, be sure to let us know if you were invited by someone in particular so we can help you get to their party room during social time.

The Video Room will be open, too, for folks who would rather chill than chat!
