LAF 37th Annual Benefit

With over 600 guests and 24 generous sponsors, this sold-out event raised $275,000 to support LAF research, scholarships, and leadership programs.

LAF's 37th Annual Benefit was held on November 11, 2022 in the Grand Hall of the iconic San Francisco Ferry Building. Under the soaring ceilings and skylights, guests enjoyed catching up, food and drinks, and dancing to a live band. Thank you to all who attended!

The event celebrated the transformative work of LAF's program participants and grant recipients, with all proceeds supporting LAF research, scholarships, and leadership programs.

The LAF Annual Benefit is always a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new connections. Attendees include well-known designers, rising leaders, professors, suppliers, emerging professionals, and students. The short program allows plenty of time for introductions and interaction.

With over 600 attendees and a live band, the 2022 Annual Benefit was especially lively. We caught up with current and past  program participants and new and long-time supporters. The program recognized the 2022 LAF Olmsted Scholars and thanked the early donors to LAF's Ignite and Fuel Campaign which supports the launch of a new scholarship-internship-mentorship program for BIPOC landscape architecture students.
