Washington event to celebrate its urban forest

March 31, 2018 by  

Urban trees can bring life and a touch of green to a cityscape, and Casey Trees will be hosting an occasion that recognizes some of the champions of the city’s green canopy.

Those who attend the Canopy Awards will be able to enjoy food, drinks and an assortment of activities while they learn more about trees and how they benefit the urban environment. The funds raised will be used by Casey Trees to support its different programs and other initiatives.

The function will kick off at 6:00 pm with a preview of the items that will be up for bids in the silent auction, and a signature cocktail will be served. The party will get into full swing at 6:30 pm, with the awards ceremony scheduled to begin at 8:00 pm. There will be an open bar as well as games, a photo booth, live entertainment, and lots of time to network and socialize. The suggested dress for the night is cocktail casual.

This celebration is open to anyone who is 21 or over and ID will be checked. Tickets start at $65 if purchased ahead of time and $75 at the door. Poster printing techniques can be used to create decorations and other items for this type of occasion.

The Fifth Annual Canopy Awards will be taking place on April 26 at 1309 5th St NE. More information can be obtained from the Casey Trees website.
