Thanks to all who attended LAF’s 29th Annual Benefit on Nov 21, 2014 at the Studio Loft in the heart of Denver’s Theatre District. The 425 guests and 33 sponsors helped to raise a record-breaking $220,000 in support of LAF’s research and scholarship programs.

Top designers and leaders from practice, academia, and industry enjoyed a lively evening of cocktails, fine food, and amazing company. The program celebrated some mile-high milestones, as LAF:

  • Marked over $1 million in scholarships awarded to over 500 students.

  • Unveiled the next-generation Landscape Performance Series website.

  • Honored the 2014 Olmsted Scholars, including the $25,000 graduate and $15,000 undergraduate national winners.

LAF was honored to have IRONSMITH as the Annual Benefit’s Lead Sponsor, along with 32 other sponsors whose financial and in-kind support made the event such a success.

Thanks to our Lead Sponsor:
