As the music played, guests mingled and met up with friends old and new. Younger attendees enjoyed running around the expansive natural setting. Whether rolling down hills or watching the ducks on the lake, it was the perfect opportunity for all ages to appreciate nature in our area and understand why it is important that we continue to strive to keep open spaces available in our area.
BACT Executive Director, Lisa Woolford, welcomed guests and explained the organizations mission and goals. A matching grant from the Donnelly Foundation will give the organization $15,000. If they can raise $30,000. Volunteer Kate Himes walked the event with a decorated box for attendees to make their donations. They had hoped to raise a good portion of the match at this event.
