Up With Trees hosted its seventh annual Green Leaf Gala at the Pavilion at Expo Square. Celebrating 40 years of Up With Trees and Tulsa’s Love for Trees, guests entered a tree-filled pavilion, and were entertained by endless opportunities such as the “Bourbon, Bubbles & Bling,” “40 Golden Trees Dinner”, a travel-packed silent auction, a dazzling live auction, games, and dancing to the lively performance by the band, Lost Wax. Needless to say, it was a night of continuous surprises and treats!
Thanks to the efforts of our Event Chairs Rania Nasreddine and Jessica Yoon, Honorary Chairs Jim and Alice Costas, Anniversary Chair Bonnie Klein, and an incredible team of Gala Committee members, the evening raised more than $250,000, resulting in one of the most successful events Up With Trees has held to date.
The dollars raised at this year’s Gala help us continue in our mission to plant, preserve, and promote Tulsa’s urban forest. The night was a celebration of not only Up With Trees’ 40 years, but the future of our community and its trees.
