Recap: Casey Tree's Third Annual Canopy Awards

BY: BRYN MOLLOY

This past Thursday, Casey Tree's threw their Third Annual Canopy Awards at Union Market in Dock5!

Casey Tree's honored three individuals for their contributions to the greater DC area: Ryoko Yamamoto (award for education), Mary C. Cheh (council member awarded for leadership), and Gregg Serenbetz (award for volunteer service). 

The event was a huge success, incorporating a variety of local businesses that offered samples and the opportunity to speak directly with the owners about their product and business philosophy. 

The event had live music, was fully stocked with games and activities from the silent auction to build your own trail-mix, had a great variety of food and treats, and the drinks were great and never ending. 

The event, organized by Casey Tree's Communications and Development Team, allowed for a group of environmentally passionate and tree-loving individuals to come together and honor three individuals for their hard work and dedication to the DC community, as well as the opportunity to fundraise for Casey Tree's.

Think this event sounds up your alley? Make sure to make the event next year!
