Austin Mayor Steve Adler addressed the guests, affirming his dedication to protecting and growing Austin’s urban forest.
TreeFolks is grateful for the support of everyone who attended and for the wonderful entertainment provided by Ann Sauder, Mezzo-soprano of The Ann Sauder Jazz Trio, and Oliver Steck, performer and auctioneer.
We are so very grateful to the businesses and organizations that sponsored the Root Ball, TreeFolks’ April 30 gala at Eden East. The food was delectable, the music divine, and the cocktails flowed freely. Everyone seemed to have a really fantastic time and the proceeds raised will support this season’s tree planting and education projects right here at home in Austin, TX. In the coming months, we’ll feature many of the sponsors in Looking Up! — News from the Urban Forest, so you’ll know just who’s stepping up to plant and take care of Austin’s trees! In the meantime, check out the Facebook album to view more photos and the wonderful sponsors.
