2019 Clean & Green Gala

2019 Clean & Green Gala

 

 

Gala 6:00—8:30 PM
Xcel Energy After Party 8:30 – 10:30 PM

Join us for a night of celebration as together, we build a cleaner, greener future.

This year’s Clean & Green Gala is raising donations to restore our parks and natural areas – the places that we, as Minnesotans, cherish so dearly. Proceeds from every ticket sold, auction item purchased, and donation made will protect and beautify the green spaces in your own neighborhood. 

All white cocktail attire admired but not required.

 

CLEAN & GREEN GALA EMCEE

Our parks are in a state of rapid decline; they’re overrun by invasive plants and pests, they struggle to sustain native wildlife, and they compromise our outdoor experiences.

The 2019 Clean & Green Gala is raising money to restore and protect the precious green spaces we cherish. Funds will help us plant trees and wildflowers, restore shorelines, stop the spread of invasive plants, and most importantly, inspire stewards who will protect these areas in the future.

Check out the natural areas that will benefit from your generous contribution at this year’s event:
