#FlowerPower: Always one of the best parties of the season, River Rocks did not disappoint this year with a fabulous “Enchanted Garden”-themed event on Saturday night to benefit the Aspinwall Riverfront Park. This is the second time the event was held at the park, and the first to be held in the newly opened welcome center. A VIP reception in the “Secret Garden” with a tropical twist complete with steel drum music and other surprises welcomed guests. A “Beer Garden” featured beers from local breweries as guests nibbled on bites by the JPC Event Group, including an Asian wok station that served delectables in mini takeout boxes, and a fun doughnut display. Stunning metal floral sculptures complemented fresh florals, fairy lights, butterflies and birds while partygoers enjoyed the musical stylings of Bill Deasy and the Gathering Field. The event, a smashing success with more than 500 guests, raised $130,000 for the park.
