The Evanston Environmental Association and the city of Evanston will host the inaugural Evanston Green Ball, from 7 to 11 p.m., May 18, at the Levy Center, in Evanston. A festive evening of food, drinks and live music will sustain the future of the Evanston Ecology Center, an invaluable community institution dedicated to environmental education for almost 40 years.
Appetizers and drinks from local restaurants and wine vendors, including Goose Island, MJ’s Catering and Prairie Moon Restaurant and organic wines from WineStyles will be served. The South Boulevard Band will provide live music.
In a live auction, such unique prizes as behind-the-scenes tours of the Field Museum mammal collection and the Evanston water plant and its green roof, a kayaking tour and a home solar energy consultation will be awarded to the highest bidders.
Location: 300 Dodge Ave., Evanston. Early-bird tickets are $50 until May 4. Free parking. For more information, visit EvanstonEnvironment.org/greenball.html.
