Evergreen Ball in Vail Valley on Aug. 8

AVON, Colorado ” The EverGreen Ball and Expo, scheduled for Aug. 8, is a fundraiser for the valley’s three most important conservation organizations ” The Eagle Valley Land Trust, The Eagle River Watershed Council and the Eagle Valley Alliance for Sustainability.

Sponsorship packets, invitation requests and general information are now available at the event’s Web site, http://www.theevergreenball.org.

From the publicity to the decor and the dance floor, everything about the EverGreen Ball will be as sustainable as possible. The food will be organic, energy consumption and waste will be reduced, and the event is purchasing carbon credits to offset its already small footprint, making it 100 percent carbon-neutral.

The event will be at the Traer Creek property in Avon under a big tent.

Prior to the EverGreen Ball that afternoon at Traer Creek, there will be a free Expo and Farmers’ Market. Green businesses – working in the fields of renewable energy, green building, resource conservation, eco-transportation and green home and body products – will showcase their goods and services. At the Farmers’ Market, local farmers and ranchers will market their homegrown products.
