It’s a Mystree!

As you may know, we have a few tricks up our sleeves during the Canopy Awards.  In 2015, we created Camp Casey Trees, where guests got “campy under the canopy”. In 2016, we highlighted our efforts in D.C.’s parks by turning Dock5 — a warehouse — into a full on indoor park. Between croquet, photo booths, craft activities, and signature cocktails, we’ve been known to go all out when it comes to the theme.

So, what do we have in store this year at the Blind Whino? With a location full of intrigue and flair, you can bet we’ll pull out the stops this year. The picture is a hint, but that’s all we’ll give you. For now, anyways.

See you there!

Get Your Name Out at the Canopy Awards

We are almost one month away from the Fourth Annual Canopy Awards!

This year our doors will open early at 6:00 p.m.! As guests arrive they will be greeted by our signature cocktail and can begin bidding on our silent auction. From sky-diving to a free night for two at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts during a run of The King and I — the silent auction is stacked! Aside from getting the first crack at bidding, the event preview will have an open bar, live music and more — we promise, this is one party you won’t want to be fashionably late for!

All proceeds, from ticket sales to silent auction bids, benefits Casey Trees. But did you know that you and your business can also play a major role at the event itself by donating to the silent auction?

Why should you consider making a donation to the silent auction?

  • Help raise funds. When donated items are bid and won at the event, additional funds are raised to help Casey Trees plant and care for more trees across D.C.
  • Get brand exposure. You can brand yourself or your business as community and sustainability-minded. All donations are professionally displayed and you or your business’s name is listed alongside the item and in the evening’s program.
  • Receive a tax deduction. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law as a charitable contribution.
  • Feel good. Sharing is caring so when you donate, you can take great satisfaction in knowing that you did a good deed.

To make your donation — you do not need to be in the D.C. area to donate — complete our online form, send us an email, or call us at 202.833.9125.

2017 Canopy Awards Tickets Now on Sale!

We are excited to announce that tickets for The Fourth Annual Canopy Awards are officially on sale!

The Canopy Awards is Casey Trees’ flagship event that highlights the accomplishments of those working to boost and protect D.C.’s tree canopy, raises funds and gets you out for a night of fun.

Rest assured, the Canopy Awards is no stuffy affair. In 2015, we created “Camp Casey Trees”- an experience where guests raced regatta boats, danced to bands, dashed off letterpress postcards to home, dined in the mess hall, and grabbed their beers out of a docked canoe.

Last year, we turned Dock5 — an indoor warehouse — into a full on park. Partygoers promenaded through the tree-lined “streets”, were entertained by troubadours and street artists, played croquet while sipping local D.C. libations, and chowed down on delicious fare served from street vendors.

So what’s this year’s theme? You’ll have to come to the party to find out. We’ll give you a few clues here and there, but you won’t want to be late for this date.

Watch our highlight reel, scroll through the photos and mark your calendars — Thursday, April 27, 2017.

Tickets are currently at a discounted, early-bird rate of $60 until March 6. Get your tickets here!

All raised funds benefit Casey Trees.
