For engaged leaders and philanthropists, HEROES in the Park is a social event and fund-raising platform that celebrates, encourages and connects “HEROES” in our communities. We serve to impact and inspire social good through extraordinary experiences – committing to acts bigger than ourselves, supporting the next generation of HEROES dedicated to making a difference.
HEROES in the Park – Opening Night in the Park is an epic, star-studded music and culinary celebration under the stars, inspired by the legacy of Mayor William V. “Bill” Bell.
Featuring an all-star outdoor concert that includes Kool & The Gang, Sheila E., Morris Day & The Time, YahZarah, Marlon Jordan, John Brown, Rebirth Brass Brand, Durham Medical Orchestra, Durham Children's Choir and more, HEROES in the Park will bring together some of the Mayor’s closest friends and colleagues, as well as the community and business leaders, to celebrate his many contributions to the betterment of lives of people throughout our community.
2017 HEROES in the Park – Opening Night in the Park proceeds will be donated to the Bill & Judith Bell Foundation and Save the Children.
HEROES in the Park is proud to partner with local food trucks, mobile kitchens and with one of the most prolific and visionary restaurateur’s – Giorgios Bakatsias and Giorgios Hospitality Group to deliver our HEROES a unique culinary experience under the stars.

The Bill & Judith Bell Foundation allows Mayor William V. “Bill” Bell to remain a connected voice in Durham. The Foundation will partner to expand resources for individuals, programs, organizations and initiatives that confront challenges and provide solutions in the areas of the arts, education, early childhood development, affordable housing, healthcare and poverty – helping to improve the foundation in which every person gets an opportunity to live an active, healthy and productive life.
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.
