Kick'n it for the Trees
Kick'n it for the Trees

It’s no accident that Sacramento is known as “The City of Trees.” Most of the trees that line our streets, decorate our parks, and provide blissful reprieve from our summer sun were planted by someone. For over 150 years, the people of Sacramento have planted and loved the city’s trees – making our urban forest one of the Top 10 in the U.S. And while planting trees can be arduous work with all the dirt and shovels, there’s a new way to help make sure that Sacramento stays in the shade for many summers to come.

Footgolf, get your head in the game. It’s like playing golf (on an actual course and everything) but Tree Foundation and North Sacramento Chamber of Commerce are hosting a Footgolf Tournament Sacramento to benefit the trees that make our city beautiful (and bearable). If you haven’t heard of with a soccer ball, and It. Is. Awesome. And what better way to try an awesome new game than by supporting one of our local non-profits at the same time?

A ticket to play is only $60 until August 29th and it comes with a gift bag and dinner!  Grab some friends and your argyle socks and put together your own tournament team. Details are below and registration is online at sactree.com.

When: Thursday, September 18th

Kick off at 3:30 p.m.

Dinner at 6:00 p.m.

Why: Because trees keep you from melting every summer, clean pollution out of the air, increase our property values, and encourage us to live healthier lives.
