Thank you for a wonderful evening

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 20th celebration of the much-beloved Trails Forever Gala at Presidio Tunnel Tops on Sept. 30, 2022. Over 800 guests paid tribute to event founders Julie Haas, Julie Parish, and Mark Buell, and raised over $1.25 million for park trails, projects, and programs.

Park leaders kicked off a year of 50th Anniversary events for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, including the debut of Headlands Brewing Company's 50th Anniversary series of four park IPAs (support the parks by purchasing this commemorative beer as we celebrate our anniversary year). Sweeping views provided the perfect backdrop for enjoying lively music and entertainment, gourmet cocktails, hearty food stations and cozy campfires.

The anniversary planning committee was admirably led by co-chairs Ali Fried, Amanda Hoenigman, Alex Lyon, and Melanie Peña. A huge thank-you to all our committee members and sponsors:
