Thanks to all who attended LAF’s 28th Annual Benefit on Nov 15, 2013 at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The 400 guests and 32 sponsors helped to raise a record-breaking $200,000 in support of LAF’s research and scholarship programs.

Guests from design practice, academia, and industry enjoyed spectacular harbor views, good food and drink, and amazing company while celebrating the rising tide of landscape performance and the next generation of leaders in the profession.

The program included an update on the Landscape Performance Series and its impact, recognition of the 2013 CSI Research Fellows, and a ceremony honoring the 2013 Olmsted Scholars, including the $25,000 graduate national winner and the first winner of the new $15,000 undergraduate award.

LAF was honored to have IRONSMITH as the Annual Benefit’s Lead Sponsor, along with 31 other sponsors whose financial and in-kind support made the event such a success.

Thanks to our Lead Sponsor:
