Kudos! Big thank you – Cine en el Parque was a success

Marie Trigona with King County Natural Resources and Parks thanks all the King County staff and community partners who took part in Cine en el Parque and ensured it was a fun, successful community event.

Hi all,

Many thanks for making Cine en el Parque a terrific success, in particular the White Center Community Development Association who cosponsored the event. We had about 500 attendees and we collected more than 100 stamped passes. King County had 10 tables and nine community partners who came out to the event. Two media outlets attended the event including, King 5 and El Siete Dias. Univision, the West Seattle Blog and White Center Now also helped promote the event.

After the event we posted to the Facebook event page thanking everyone who came out. We also asked that if they would like Cine en el Parque to return next year, to like the page, tell us how the event went and to share the post. We received 100 likes. Some comments included, “A beautiful and positive event for families and the community #united” and “Thanks to the organizers of this event”.

We would like to thank the staff at Steve Cox Memorial Park and the White Center Teen Program for doing such a great job getting the park ready and welcoming people. A big thank you to De’Sean Quinn who helped coordinate getting our tables set up and to Mauricio Martinez who produced an interview segment with Univision to promote the event. We also want to thank Mercedes Garcia from the radio station, El Rey 1630, who was an amazing MC and helped us book the entertainment.
