Jack London State Park Sponsor SpotlightEnsuring a sustainable park that would make Jack London proud.
Jack London State Park has been the gorgeous backdrop for Transcendence Theatre Company’s (TTC) Broadway Under the Stars summer series since the very beginning. When TTC arrived in 2012, a state crisis threatened to shut down the Park, which gave the Transcendence founders an idea to help save the Park; by making it their stage. With six weeks and $83 in their pockets, the company put on on the show of a lifetime. Nine hundred members of the community came out to save the Park and join the magic. At the same time, Jack London Park Partners (JLPP) emerged. JLPP was the first nonprofit organization to take up management of a state park on behalf of the people of California, and it has been successfully running Jack London State Historic Park ever since.
The Park Partners is the outgrowth of Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, a citizens’ group established nearly a half-century ago to support the interpretive needs of three parks in Sonoma County, including Jack London State Historic Park. The Association has played a vital role in recruiting and organizing the band of hundreds of volunteers, which supports all functions of the Park. It contributes funds to advance cultural and recreational programs, creates educational exhibits, displays, and signage at the Park.
Jack London Park Partners depends on the generosity of private citizens in providing programming, operating, and maintaining the land and historic structures of this treasure of natural beauty and historical significance, which is why Transcendence has teamed up with JLPP as their nonprofit partner for the Gala Celebration. Jack London Park Partners will receive 10% of all donations made during the Gala! Make sure to show your support for both Jack London Park Partners and Transcendence Theatre Company by watching and donating during the Gala!

MEGGIE CANSLER NESS: The Zwerling family are my PEOPLE! They volunteer for us EVERY SUMMER for EVERY SHOW. Their faces fill me with love and joy whenever I see them. We all had a lovely dinner at the MAYO reserve room years back and it bonded us for life. Beautiful, magical, people – I am so thankful you are Son-home-a family!
LEESA YOUNG: I would love to shout out to our Team Skittles Awesome Volunteer Judy Mahoney! Judy is always there for our team whether it is making cobbler for the office or being at the park helping the box office anytime we need to fill a spot. She always brings Skittles with her to make us happy. Some weekends she volunteers 3 nights in a row! When I moved into my new house and didn’t have very many things she brought me a bag full of kitchen pots and pans and clothes. She has given endlessly and is always there for us.
