Dressing in green can end up helping keep Louisville clean and beautiful. The people behind Brightside's Green Tie Bash explain how you can make sure your outfit for the night makes everyone else green with envy.
Brightside's Green Tie Bash Friday, March 2 The Olmsted Tickets: $45 advance|$50 door www.brightsideinc.org Must be 21 Info: WDRB.com or 574-2613
Brightside's Green Tie Bash is presented by Young Professionals Association of Louisville and the Louisville Urban League Young Professionals.
This festive fundraiser benefits Brightside and will help continue its mission of keeping Louisville clean, green, & beautiful.
Green cocktail attire is encouraged, and Urban Attic Consignment is the place to find it! Partnering with the event for the first time, Urban Attic will have a collection of green dresses & accessories available perfect for our guests. Plus, Urban Attic will be donating all profits on the sale of green items back to Brightside.
The event features The Acorn Awards, honoring individuals and businesses who are leaders in Louisville's green community as well as Brightside's civic engagement and legacy awards
All three organizations are dedicated to community service, so in addition to raising funds for Brightside's programs, we'll designate some of the proceeds for a volunteer service project later this year.
While the event is one night only, the spirit of community and civic engagement continues when the planning committee and other guests are invited to participate in a community improvement project with Brightside. (Previous projects include cleanups and tree plantings.)
Brightside is donor funded and volunteer driven for a more beautiful Louisville.
