About the Fundraiser

Trees For Tomorrow and its Board of Directors are excited to invite you to our annual banquet fundraiser to support natural resource education and sustainable forestry outreach to our aspiring youth.

Founded in 1944, the mission of Trees For Tomorrow is to promote sustainable management of our resources through transformative educational experiences. We are preparing today’s youth to be tomorrow’s stewards of our natural world. Our students come from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois school districts. Some schools are new to Trees, others have been coming to Eagle River for the programs for decades. The educators couple classroom time using inquiry based educational methods, with engaging and fun outdoor skills building to reinforce the importance and interconnectivity of the environmental components of soil, water, wildlife and forests, and our human role as stewards of the natural landscape.


While Trees’ main focus is on school-aged children in grades K-12, programs extend to address adults as well through summer evening programs, outreach programs to area resorts, collaboration with the Timberwolf Information Network, and Road Scholars programs that get visitors out onto the trails, waters and roads to experience all Northern Wisconsin has to offer. But no matter what program leads people to Trees For Tomorrow, the message remains the same: sustainable management of our natural resources.

We reach over 10,000 people annually in the following ways:

  • K-12 School Groups Attending 3-4 Day Programs
  • Year-Round Special Programs
  • Colleges and Adult Groups
  • As a Meeting and Training Facility
  • Youth, Family, and Community Programs

We hope you’ll join us in supporting our cause through a donation or ticket purchase to
our banquet, Saturday, November 5, 2016, at the Green Bay Botanical Garden, Green Bay,
Wisconsin. Your donation would be appreciated and a wonderful addition to the event;
enhancing the dollars that are raised.

5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Trees For Tomorrow and its Board of Directors are excited to host a banquet fundraiser to support natural resource education and sustainable forestry outreach to our aspiring youth.  Proceeds of the live auction will go directly towards the purchase of equipment and supplies so that students can experience real-life science experiments and data collection regarding environmental science and sustainability.

If you are interested in supporting our cause as a volunteer, please contact Kristine Greb at (715) 891-7607.

Volunteers will help to set-up, clean up, check in and check out guests, greet guests, keep time, run music and visuals, lighting, take pictures, and help with the live auction.  More specifically, we will need someone to record the auction item buyer and amount, someone to enter it into our software, several additional people to help record fund-a-need donations since they come in fast.  (Need several to record fund-a-need to make sure no one got missed in the record.) Need one volunteer for every 50 people to help with auction.

Volunteers should plan on arriving on event day at 3:00 pm.  Pizza, soda, and water will be provided for dinner.  About one week prior to the event we will have a meeting with all the volunteers at the venue to review the job duties.  At that time 2-3 volunteers will be trained on how to use the check in/check out software.  We encourage you to ask about being seated for dinner, some positions would allow this!

We Exceeded our Goal

The Trees For Tomorrow Banquet Fundraiser held on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin had 107 guests and raised a net total of $24,336 for the purchase of needed equipment for our educational programs.


The banquet exceeded its goal by $9,336 or 62%.  This was due to the generosity of our sponsors and guests in attendance.  The three top revenue generators for this event were table sponsorship, live auction, and the fund-in-need appeal.  Thank you Jessica Malcore of Aldo Leopold Community School for sharing your Trees For Tomorrow experience which touched the hearts of everyone in the room and raised $6,850.  Every guest participated by giving in some way either by bidding on silent and live auction items, raising their bid number to give during the fund-in-need appeal, or through the purchase of a cold beverage.  Thank you to John Gerczak at Gerczak’s Liquor for hosting our bar and helping us pick our wines and the selection of craft beers.


We provided ways for our guests to learn more about Trees For Tomorrow through a PowerPoint presentation, posters filled with pictures of our students as well as photos placed around the room for guests to thumb through.


We increased awareness of our strategic goals by placing several posters around the room listing our vision and mission.  Our educators greeted guests during social hour to ask questions and hear inspirational stories of what we do at Trees For Tomorrow.  The educators were the best people for our guests to talk to about our new curriculum and its huge impact on the future success of Trees For Tomorrow.
We reached all of our goals set for this banquet except the 150-attendance goal.

TFT match light/tatoos

Match light is a game that lumberjacks used to play on their day off. A wooden match is placed upright in a log and participants (festival goers) use a hatchet to try to strike the match and light it. Usually we give a person 3 to 5 attempts. If they succeed, their name is written in the Trees For Tomorrow Hall of Flame book.  Also at this table: Temporary leaf tattoos. Kids love these. You’ll apply these with a sponge, dampened with water. Hold the sponge over the tattoo for about 60 seconds, so it becomes thoroughly moistened. You should then be able to peal the backing off of the tattoo!

Skulls, skins, bones

Basically, people (mainly families with kids) will wander in and out of the room throughout the day, check out the skulls, skins and bones, touch them (unless you designate otherwise), do some of the activities you suggest (if you suggest any), etc.   I need you to staff this room throughout the day and to orient and monitor the volunteer(s) assigned to help with Skulls, Skins & Bones. I’m hoping to get two for you. (There are times when you’ll be swamped with people!)  Also, it goes without saying, that I need you to make sure everything gets put away and cleaned up after 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Geocaching

Place a few caches on campus the week before campus and program the coordinates into the GPS units.  Select times throughout the day (top of every hour? Less frequently? Etc.) to go with groups of people interested in trying geocaching, to help them find their way (and make sure no one walks off with our GPS units!)  Select appropriate cache locations.  Make the handoff for the GPS units and arrangements to get them back.  Determine what times they plan to do geocaching so I can include them in the schedule.  Goecashes are to be located at 4 difficult waypoints.  Put containers there with candy/prizes as needed.
