Footprints is a non-profit organization that provides environmental education programs in elementary and middle schools throughout Greater Vancouver. Funds raised at the gala will be put toward helping local children plant forestry in their neighbourhood (specifically Panorama Park in the spring of 2011).
From the organizers: “Our vision is to provide young community leaders with resources and opportunities to become active, informed citizens, develop grass-roots initiatives in a project-oriented environment, and enhance the quality of life in communities throughout the Greater Vancouver.”
Footprints hosts many workshops and community events across the Lower Mainland. From documentary film screenings at SFU downtown to workshops on using online media for social change at UBC.
The Planting the Seed gala on December 10th, 2010 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre will be catered by Chef Fred Soofi of Pasta Polo and Club Ilia. The $60 ticket includes dinner, guest speakers, and dancing. A silent auction and raffle will also run with prizes available from Grouse Mountain, MEC, Westin, London Drugs and more. Miss604.com is also proud to be a sponsor of the gala event.
If you would like to attend the gala December 10th, I have two tickets available to give away (value $120). To enter to win, please leave a comment on this post. It can be about how you’ve reduced your “footprint” or how you would like to see your community be more “green”. I will draw one winner Friday December 3rd at 9:00am.
