It’s a wrap! GreenTown supporters enjoyed a magical evening of connecting with environmentally-minded community members while enjoying family-style dining and bidding on a creative array of silent and live auction items. The event was held in the beautiful History Museum Courtyard on Saturday, October 20. It featured a delicious, sustainable, locally-sourced meal, along with local wine from Portola Vineyards and beer from Lagunitas. Many local businesses supported the event through sponsorships and in-kind donations. And County Supervisor, Joe Simitian, engaged the crowd as auctioneer. Thanks to our sponsors, in-kind donors, and attendees, we met our fundraising goal of $20,000!
Two community Environmental Heroes were honored at this year’s event:
Thank you Kathleen and Sybil for all you do to make our community greener.
In addition, Jana Schlansker, GTLA Board Member, was honored with an Environmental Hero Award for her incredible dedication to the mission of GreenTown, managing our database, keeping us organized, and making sure we cross all our t’s and dot all our i’s. Thank you Jana. We would limp without you!
Thanks to our sponsors, donors and attendees for making the event spectacular!
