Green Carpet Gala 2017

Fourth Presbyterian Church, Gratz Center
115 E. Delaware Place, Chicago


Join us for an evening celebrating the Arts for Environmental and Social Change. Mingle with like-minded friends who believe in sustainability and creativity. Meet leaders of the environmental movement and filmmaking community. 

Our Sixth Annual Green Carpet Gala will take place at 6 p.m. Friday, March 3, at Fourth Presbyterian Church's sparkling contemporary addition: the LEED-certified Gratz Center. Completed in 2013, this sleek space honors the original, neo-Gothic, 1914 structure via large overlooking windows.

The evening will feature live performances, a filmmakers panel, and a festival preview. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and networking -- while participating in our ticketed drawing for a chance to win great prizes, including an eco-resort getaway.

Arrive early (5PM) to enjoy the Midwest premiere of Conservation International’s virtual reality short film, “Under the Canopy”-- straight from Sundance Film Fest! Test drives of Nissan’s all-electric Leaf car will also start at 5PM. 

Attire is business casual or cocktail attire.

Tickets are $70 per person in advance, and $80 per person at the door.
