Raise the Roofs

An interscholastic polo match in the TSC Arena was part of the festivities during the 7th Annual Raise the Roofs at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm.

If previous years are any indication, Friends of Franklin Parks’ eighth annual Raise the Roofs fundraiser promises to be the best event of the summer, with some new twists and surprises expected at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm on Saturday, Aug. 17.

Event chairs Ken and Ellie Westman Chin, along with Susan and Brian Smallwood, are combining their talents in event curation, design, marketing and production to create experiences that showcase Franklin’s diverse offerings across the entire parks and trails system, all while demonstrating the range of enhancements that are continuously being implemented as a result of private-sector support. 

The event, to be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 17, will incorporate more of the Harlinsdale Park campus and include a buffet dinner, along with traditional elements, such as the polo match held in the Tractor Supply Co. Arena. Patrons can expect plenty of great food, drink and cheer, live music and an after party beginning at 8:30 p.m. 

Tickets are available for $125 per person, and all proceeds benefit the Friends of Franklin Parks and the organization’s efforts to continually enhance and connect the city’s incredible park system.

Tickets are available online at A portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.
