08 Jan 211 People Rally for Tiny Trees – $48,600 Raised

In November 211 people joined Teddy, myself and 9 board members at the Museum of Flight to help make Tiny Trees Preschool, and the dream of affordable, nature rich preschool a reality. Together we raised $48,600 to help us build the organization and the team needed to make it happen. Specifically the luncheon is funding our new education director, Erin Soper, who will be working with myself to implement the Tiny Trees vision. Great ideas take good people and due to the grassroots support of the Tiny Trees community we can now afford to build the team this idea deserves.

Please join me in giving thanks to the following people for their support at our 2015 luncheon:
