Thank you to all who participated in our first virtual Annual Benefit and online auction. Together, we raised $230,000 to support LAF's research, scholarships, and leadership initiatives!

On October 15, LAF hosted a playful virtual re-imagining of our Annual Benefit with Miami vibes and a variety of experiences, surprises, and glimpses into the worlds of friends and colleagues. From spoken word and house plant show-and-tell to drawing games and film review, the 20+ hosted rooms hosted by leaders in landscape architecture offered something for everyone.

Running for a week following the Annual Benefit, the LAF Online Auction featured 40 items donated by LAF friends and supporters, including virtual tours of notable landscape projects, vacation home getaways, wine-tastings, designer furniture, book sneak peeks and more. Congratulations to the winners, including those who took advantage of the "Early Professionals Tier."



LAF is grateful for our 23 Annual Benefit sponsors, including Lead Sponsors IRONSMITH and SiteOne Landscape Supply. See the complete list below.

LAF is grateful to the many individuals and organizations that provide financial support towards fulfilling our mission to support the preservation, improvement, and enhancement of the environment.

Much of what LAF is able to accomplish would not be possible without the thought leadership and financial investment of our major supporters, including ASLA, which provides over $125,000 of in-kind support annually.
