Bethesda Green Holding 3rd Annual Gala
The environmental nonprofit that works on sustainability programs and education in Bethesda is holding its annual gala and major fundraising event on Oct. 11 at the LEED Platinum certified 2000 Tower Oaks Blvd. building in Rockville. The gala helps fund many of Bethesda Green's most prominent initiatives, including its annual Fields of Green Internship Fair (set for February), its solar and green home expo and its green business incubator program at its headquarters on the corner of Woodmont and Cordell Avenues. The event includes an auction and the announcement of Bethesda Magazine's annual Green Champion award winners. "At the core of what we do is education and information to connect the community with ways to improve energy efficiency," said Bethesda Green's Dave Heffernan. Advance tickets are $100 a person. Attendees can claim $40 of each ticket as a tax deductible donation to Bethesda Green. For more information, visit the Gala website.
