Root Ball 2024

Thursday, May 2, 2024

6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Guardian Works, 775 Echo Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

We are using as our Root Ball ticketing and guest list management software. It is a secure and trusted website. Your name and information will not be shared outside of Trees Atlanta.

A portion of your ticket purchase may be tax-deductible. Patron levels and benefits are listed below. Root Ball proceeds from ticket sales, Patrons, and Sponsors support our programs and operations. Thank you!

Guests at Root Ball will enjoy: Delicious appetizers, food and dessert stations, open bar, live entertainment, program information stations, and a silent auction. You will also take home a party gift, cheerful photo booth prints, and great memories with old friends and new.

Festive Patio Cocktail Attire: You’ll mix, mingle, and move among interior and exterior spaces throughout the venue. We invite you to come as fancy or as casual as you wish. We’re always delighted to see how bright and stylish our guests are, and there’s typically a few delightfully surprising ensembles in the crowd. Let our event photographers capture your flare! The Guardian Works is a beautifully renovated 1908 brick and beam building that was once a perfume factory. The floors are concrete inside and on the covered patio. A grass lawn is also open to guests. Look back at some fun moments from Root Ball evenings of years past.

Parking: A parking deck is a few steps to the venue ($10 per car). We will provide a golf cart shuttle for anyone wanting or needing assistance moving from between the parking deck and the venue.
