This year’s Green Gala will highlight the issues of water and renewable energy. It will kick-off a monthlong celebration leading up to the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act and promote EcoWatch’s petition telling Congress to expedite renewable energy.
Brief remarks will be provided by Marcus Eriksen, director of 5 Gyres Institute and world-renowned water advocate who has brought attention to the issue of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and its impact on human health and the environment. Additional special guests will be announced closer to the fundraiser so be sure to join our email list by clicking here.
Honeybucket, a Cleveland-based “newgrass” trio that showcases the best of pop-rock with a bluegrass twist, will open the evening as attendees enjoy the Rock Hall exhibits.
