Citizens for Brentwood Green Space Presents Check to Brentwood from "Walk in Park" Proceeds

The Citizens for Brentwood Green Space presented the City of Brentwood a $12,000 check at a recent Brentwood City Commission meeting as a result of the second annual “A Walk In The Park” event held October 30th. Over 200 people attended the event which featured hayrides, food provided by several local vendors, historic home tours, live music and a kid’s zone.

In addition to the title sponsor, H. G. Hill Realty Company, other sponsors for “A Walk in the Park” included United Healthcare, The Mick Foundation, H. Michael Hindman Architects, Middle Tennessee Ear, Nose & Throat, Nolensville Market Square, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Southern Oral & Facial Surgery, Nelson Mazda Cool Springs and Southeast Venture. Local media and marketing sponsors included Brentwood Home Page, Williamson Herald, YOUR Williamson Magazine, WAKM-AM radio, and Harkins Marketing Advisors. Hospitality sponsors were Judge Bean’s BBQ, Papa C Pies, Bradley’s Creamery, Mid TN Erosion and Sediment Control, Fitness Together and Liberty Party Rental. Brentwood Academy provided the very popular “Balloon Art” featuring Glenna Thompson. Amerigos and Mere Bulles provided gift certificates as well. Finally, a one-of-a-kind Ravenswood Mansion painting was donated for a silent auction by local Williamson County artist Mike Moyers, who is known for his knife-edge style and brightly hued nature settings.

CBGS formally announced a goal to help raise $300,000 in late 2011 toward the acquisition of the remaining 77.89 acres at Ravenswood Farm, which was later acquired in early 2014. The CBGS continues to push to add green space in our community. With this payment, a total of $160,535 has been donated to the City. These funds helped Brentwood purchase the remaining acres at Ravenswood Farm and add future amenities at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, including the development of a new picnic shelter as part of the City’s Phase II expansion.

Puffy Muffin Introduces Iced Sugar Cookie With Proceeds Benefiting Brentwood Green Space!

Brentwood-based Puffy Muffin Dessert Bakery & Restaurant just put good taste back into fundraising. On November 1, the restaurant and bakery introduced a new Iced Sugar Cookie in the shape of Brentwood Green Space's logo as part of an ongoing year-long fundraising effort. The over-sized sugar cookie is coated with thick white icing and decorated with green icing in an outline of a heart and leaf design. "We loved the idea," said Lynda Stone, Owner and Founder of Puffy Muffin. "We are very supportive of Brentwood Green Space's efforts to protect the park, open space and trail areas in the city and we felt this was a creative way to support those efforts on an ongoing basis." The cookies are ideal for birthday's anniversaries, company outings, and catered events.

Puffy Muffin has committed to donating 10% from the sale of each cookie to Brentwood Green Space through the end of 2017. The bakery plans to sync the cookie's decorations with popular holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, and more. For now, the cookies are only available in the Brentwood location on Franklin Road.

According to Puffy Muffin, early sales of the Iced Sugar Cookie have been brisk. Brentwood Green Space has already been approached by other local companies about doing similar things with their products.
