CAROLINAS GREEN GALA & SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS AWARDS
December 5th, 2019 / Charlotte, NC
The Mint Museum Uptown
Hosted by the USGBC North & South Carolina Communities
December 5th, 5:30 pm to 9 pm
For eight years and counting, USGBC Carolinas’ Green Gala has brought together sustainability advocates from across the Carolinas to toast the best of the best in local green building. This premier social event and fundraiser offers networking, a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, open bar, dinner and unique experiences at the Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte, NC. Proceeds from this event support our education, advocacy and volunteer programs.
We hope you'll join us as we celebrate the innovative projects and inspiring volunteers working to make a greener future for all in the Carolinas.
The Carolinas Green Gala features the announcement of the winners of our Sustainable Business Awards, which honor excellence in high-performance design, environmental stewardship, volunteer service and community impact. In addition, event attendees will vote to determine which of our impressive nominees will take home the prestigious People's Choice Award.
This year we're hoping to up the sustainability factor of the Carolinas' Green Gala by tracking and off-setting our carbon footprint. A special thank you to Bank of America and Ingersoll Rand for being our Sustainability Sponsor!
To help minimize our carbon production, we're encouraging green travel choices like walking, biking or using public transit. You won't find plastic straws at our bars, and we'll be serving local beers from kegs to reduce glass in our waste stream. These measures are all in addition to our standard green event policies, which include local food and beverage sourcing, avoiding cut flowers, and reusable serving ware.
Together, our volunteer Green Gala committee and USGBC staff have worked to create an event that not only celebrates local achievements in sustainability but also exemplifies best practices in green event planning. So, start making your plans to attend our biggest fundraiser of the year and register now!
