Since 2010, USGBC Carolina's Green Gala has annually convened the most committed and influential building industry leaders and sustainability advocates from across our region to honor the recipients of our Community Leadership Awards.


The evening will include an awards ceremony, during which our winners will be announced, as well as a networking reception with drinks and refreshments. Event attendees will vote to decide which of our project finalists will take home our prestigious People's Choice Award.


Your participation supports USGBC's local education, advocacy, and volunteer efforts, helping to bring a greener future to all in our region.
