Celebrating the Great Outdoors encore

The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) held its annual East Coast fundraising event in Greenwich, Connecticut on September 25, 2010. Celebrating the Great Outdoors is the third NFWF fundraiser Elixir has worked on, having devel­oped mate­rials for both the 2009 and 2010 suc­cessful West Coast fundraising events in San Francisco.

Elixir designed the Celebrating the Great Outdoors event mark, sta­tionery, save-the-date, apparel, invi­ta­tion, tickets and pro­gram. Most pieces fea­tured pho­tog­raphy by Andrew Zuckerman.

Via grants to myriad orga­ni­za­tions, NFWF has funded con­ser­va­tion projects in all 50 states and around the world. Over the past 26 years, NFWF’s envi­ron­mental stew­ard­ship has earned it a rep­u­ta­tion as a global con­ser­va­tion leader. Currently, the orga­ni­za­tion is on the front lines in the Gulf of Mexico, working to reduce losses and increase repro­duc­tion among threat­ened species.

Unfolded, the invi­ta­tion mea­sures 15.5″ x 23.125″. It was printed on recy­cled newsprint in San Francisco by Oscar Printing Company.

CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric was the host for the evening, which included included a BBQ dinner, live auc­tion, fire­works and a range of out­door activ­i­ties — from archery to zipline — including an ATV obstacle course, hot air bal­loon rides, ropes chal­lenge course, trout fishing pond, leap of faith, and target shooting.

Guests of all ages had a soaring good time.

Riding the zipline by moon­light was a mem­o­rable moment.

The per­fect weather added to the cel­e­bra­tion — the only hot air was in the balloons.

We wonder whether this photo was taken from the zipline or from a hot air balloon!

He zipped through the air with the greatest of ease.
