ALIMAR Dinner thanks
The Mono Lake Committee was joined on Friday, April 29, by a wonderful group of Andrea Lawrence’s family, friends, and supporters at the first annual Andrea Lawrence Award Dinner. We would like to thank Rusty Gregory and Mammoth Mountain Ski Area for their generous sponsorship of the dinner. This very special event would have been impossible without their help. We are equally grateful to the Lawrence family for their constant support.
The gathering was held in the Parallax Restaurant at McCoy Station on Mammoth Mountain, where guests had a spectacular sunset view of the landscape Andrea loved. A diverse group of speakers related favorite memories of Andrea and their hopes that her legacy will live on through the Mono Lake Committee’s Andrea Lawrence Fund.
The event culminated in the presentation of the Andrea Lawrence Award to the Eastern Sierra Audubon Society, whose work to initiate the Owens Lake Master Plan process reflected the spirit of collaboration for which Andrea was a tireless advocate.
Thank you to all who came to share your evening with us. We look forward to seeing both old friends and new at the next Andrea Lawrence Award Dinner in the spring of 2012.
In the meantime, learn more about the Award Dinner and the Andrea Lawrence Fund on our website: www.monolake.org/mlc/alad.
