Early Bird Tickets are Now on Sale for the 2019 Canopy Awards

As you may have seen in the 730DC Newsletter, tickets are now available for our annual Arbor Day Eve bash, the Canopy Awards!

The Canopy Awards is Casey Trees’ flagship fundraising event that welcomes 500 guests to toast the accomplishments of those working to restore D.C.’s tree canopy. Historically, the theme is kept secret until the big day. However this year, to drive our point home, we will be promoting it from day one. The Sixth Annual Canopy Awards’ theme is Roots to Rivers.

This year is about more than just raising funds for our programs. We want to shed light on how we are all interconnected. A healthy, robust tree canopy captures and filters rainwater before it enters the drainage system, reducing polluting overflows into the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers and increasing our city’s resilience to the effects of climate change. Stay tuned for more details next week.
