The BBL annual event allows any group, individual, or business to participate in the beautifying event. In 2004, the project included cleaning up SR-410 and Allan Yorke Park with nearly 200 volunteers participating. Most of these volunteers came from local church groups, City staff, City council members, and sponsoring businesses. In 2005, the number of volunteers increased to over 300 and saw a broader mix of individuals, community-based groups and businesses participate, including local high school football players and their parents. The 2005 project focused on landscaping the Ascent Gateway monument area, cleaning up a number of City intersections and areas surrounding Lake Bonney, and improving a City trail near Bonney Lake Elementary School.
All volunteers are provided free T-shirts with frontal logo design (above left) and a list of sponsors. The purpose of the T-shirt is to promote unity among volunteers, create an identity for the event, and provide promotional opportunities for sponsoring businesses. The Target Corporation was a primary sponsor of past events. Other past sponsoring businesses included Columbia Bank, Garden of Eden Puyallup, Barker Enterprises, 410 Rentals, Starbucks, Priced Right Print and Sign, Sports Connection, and Godfather's Pizza.
