Going Green

All cups, plates, napkins, food, etc. at this event are compostable materials. There will be labeled bins around the event for compost, recycling and landfill. Members of our Green Patrol will be there to assist you, but please do your part by reusing materials and appropriately disposing of waste to help us keep this a more sustainable event.


The Green Gala is a semi-formal event. Guests are asked to wear green inspired attire. See pictures from last year's event to get inspired.
