On September 29th, Up With Trees invited patrons to the ninth annual Green Leaf Gala. Welcomed by a tree-covered landscape, patrons entered the DoubleTree at Warren Place to enjoy a multitude of opportunities. Guests participated in a classic Wine Pull, the famous Gold Leaf Paddle raffle, an art and experience-filled silent auction, a festive photo booth, a live auction with numerous unique packages led by Tony Wisely, games, and live entertainment by Tulsa favorite, Weston Horn and the Hush. It was truly a night of celebration.
Thanks to the efforts of our Event Co- Chairs Christen Webb and Kathy Vancuren, Honorary Chairs, Joanna, Larry, Jennifer, and Joseph Potts, and our wonderful Gala Committee, the evening was a great success and raised more than $170,000. The dollars raised at this year’s Gala will help us continue our mission to plant, preserve, and promote Tulsa’s urban forest and create a healthy, beautiful city for many seasons to come.
