Bid to win the chance at lunch and a walk on the Trinity Elm Fork with Co-Founder of The Container Store, Garrett Boone.

Stroll along a trail in Garrett’s beloved Trinity Forest in the heart of Dallas, Texas. Then enjoy a catered luncheon along the shaded banks of the Elm Fork and a sneak peek at the upcoming Elm Fork Wilderness Area.



In 1978, an idea came to Garrett Boone to open a store offering exceptional, eclectic mix of products devoted to helping people organize and simplify their lives; The Container Store opened in Dallas July 1, 1978. In 2006, Boone was inducted into the Retailing Hall of Fame.

The Container Store is a FORTUNE magazine “100 Best Companies to Work For” 17 years in a row and ranked #1 the first year they applied. 

In 2006, Garrett Boone co-founded Texas Business for Clean Air; an effort to derail a fast track initiative to construct 11 out dated coal-burning energy plants in North Texas. In 2007 Boone was First runner-up for Texan of the Year awarded by The Dallas Morning News.
