We had a great time dancing and partying it out with everyone who came out. The event was hosted at BackYard on Bell where they make delicious pizzas and serve great drinks. We had awesome 80s themed decorations, candy, video games, and music. We even had a costume contest to showcase everyone who came out with an awesome outfit or costume. There were definitely some radical costumes! Most importantly, we were able to promote and celebrate our organization and we hope to continue to make positive impacts in our community for years to come.

If you haven’t heard, KDB LOVES trees! Each fall, we give away more than 700 of them through our Community Tree Giveaway, an 19-year old free tree program dedicated to enhancing Denton’s urban tree canopy. We also love seeing the pictures that flood our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages following the Giveaway each year. Whether you tagged us directly, or shared your photos using the #mykdbtree hashtag, we can’t get enough of these pics of people with their beloved new trees. Check out the photo round-up below from this year’s Community Tree Giveaway, and keep on planting trees!
