Piedmont Beautification Foundation thanks Holiday Greeting Fund donors

2023 was PBF’s most successful fundraising year ever.

Each year as the lighting of Piedmont’s Holiday Tree approaches, Piedmont residents are invited to greet their Piedmont friends by way of donations to PBF’s Holiday Greeting Fund. This year, in addition to PBF’s regular Funds, donors were provided the opportunity to support the upcoming reforestation of Dracena Park.

Piedmont Beautification Foundation is pleased to report that a large group of Piedmont families extended holiday greeting to their Piedmont friends while responding generously to the funding opportunities offered by PBF. Almost $30,000 was contributed to PBF, including $8,300 for the Dracena Park project and $11,000 for its General Fund and $8,000 donated to the Sports Facilities Endowment. This is PBF’s newest permanent fund and is expected ultimately to become a vital source of money to properly maintain Piedmont’s many sports facilities. Coupled with other gifts, most notably the $250,000 for landscaping at the Piedmont pool, 2023 is PBF’s most successful year ever.

PBF thanks all who donated and is pleased to provide the names of the donors to the Holiday Greeting Fund. Special thanks are extended to the underwriters who financed the city-wide mailing inviting everyone to Piedmont Lights Up, as the greatly expanded evening is now known.
