The 30th annual event, chaired by Christiane and Kristopher Stuart and Carrie and Jerry Alexander, was held at the Forest Club and raised $485,000 to support Trees for Houston’s efforts to plant and protect trees in Greater Houston. Even though La Dolce Vita took place during some rainy weather, guests were all smiles and came prepared with umbrellas and patio-friendly shoes. The weather was perhaps fitting for a crowd that appreciates the importance of rain for tree growth. Guests celebrated the accomplishments during the last year, and the goal of increasing its annual tree planting and distribution numbers to 70,000+ trees. At the end of the evening, supporters were gifted an olive tree to plant at home.
