TreeHuggers Ball 2019: A Fundraiser for the Center at Mariandale

We’re proud to be TreeHuggers!

Join us on Sunday, September 22, at 4:30pm for the second annual TreeHuggers Ball: a fundraiser to benefit the Center at Mariandale, and to ensure that our retreats, services, and programs are accessible and inclusive.

We are delighted to have Kacey Morabito Grean of WHUD and Shine On as our Master of Ceremonies!

(See the photos from last year’s inaugural TreeHuggers Ball in the gallery, below).

We’ll hold this high-spirited fundraiser outside in our lovely courtyard with Hudson River views. You will also enjoy

~ Live music
~ Seasonal foods and local wine, beer, and ciders
~ A welcome to the first day of Autumn
~ A Tree of Intentions
~ Gift baskets of every theme for our raffles
~ A “BeeLovers” table with Mariandale honey
~ Tree-themed surprises!

At 6:50pm, as the sun sets, we will start the Candlelight Labyrinth Walk (don’t miss this; it is a beautiful experience!)  Or, you can gather with friends on the land and watch the sun set over the Hudson River.

We will also honor three volunteers with “Spirit of Mariandale” awards. They inspire us, and we think they will inspire you, too.
