Purpose of the Extreme Green Gala
With proceeds from the Extreme Green Gala on Friday, October 9, we'll be able to extend our renovations to do major improvements like better insulation, new windows and new efficient appliances. We expect to cut their energy bills by 20-30% with these improvements -- but we need your help to do it.
Please, take part in the cause and invite your friends to join you at the Extreme Green Gala, the pre-party to the DC Green Festival! There will be live music, organic food and great nationally recognized environmental leaders (hold your hats!). But best of all, your ticket proceeds will help fight poverty and global warming pollution at the same time.
Don't miss your spot... Purchase your ticket today!
