Green Carpet Gala
Chicago’s environmental event of the season
Seven days from now we’ll celebrate the Arts for Environmental and Social Change at the 6th Annual Green Carpet Gala.
The evening will take you on a journey down the Amazon via a special virtual reality short film, "Under the Canopy" from Conservation International. Arrive as early as 5 p.m. for this special experience.
Be enchanted by the sounds of a musician who fashions instruments of ceramic and reclaimed wood and dancers performing folkloric Bolivian dances. Mix and mingle with filmmakers and local environmental leaders. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and networking. Participate in ticketed drawings for chances to win Cubs tickets, behind the scenes tours at the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry and an eco-resort getaway.
A short program in the Buchanan Chapel features a panel of this year’s filmmakers:
Patrick Meegan (“Under the Canopy”), Cidney Hue (“Shark Loves the Amazon”), Tom Desch (“Shifting Sands”) and Gwendolen Cates (“The Good Mind”).
It all takes place 6-9:30 p.m. in the beautiful Gratz Center annex of 4th Presbyterian Church, 115 E. Delaware Place, downtown Chicago.
This is one event you don’t want to miss. We would be so honored to have you join us.
