More Info…
Join us for live music, dancing, costumes, refreshments, door prizes, and more! Tickets are $25 plus cash bar. All proceeds benefit the Ecology Center’s Mary Beth Doyle Environmental Health Fund.

The Ecology Center is a non-profit environmental advocacy organization that works for safe and healthy communities where people live, work, and play.

The Mary Beth Doyle Environmental Health Fund is named after the Ecology Center’s Environmental Health Campaign Director of 12 years who was tragically killed in a car accident in November 2004. Mary Beth was a tireless advocate for the environmental movement and lived her life with courage, hope, and a gloriously infectious joy. The Fund will be used to support Ecology Center campaigns that are exceptionally important and urgent but could otherwise not be funded, focusing on environmental health issues that were important to Mary Beth, such as working for clean air, safe consumer products, and women’s and children’s health.

  2. Also on Friday the 21st, James Howard Kunstler is appearing at Shaman Drum at 7:00 p.m. to do a reading from his new book The Long Emergency: Surviving the Converging Catastrophes of the Twenty-First Century. I imagine his talk might make a good conversation appetizer for the Ecology Center benefit.
