PARTY FOR THE PLANET — A Benefit for Save Mount Diablo
Grab your kids, grandparents and dancing shoes and come on down to Creekside Commons in Lafayette at 6pm on Saturday, November 11th to Party for the Planet! This fun and lively event is a benefit to support the great work of Save Mount Diablo.
Blue-Eyed Grass, Save Mount Diablo’s house band, will open the show. Later in the evening the Jim Ocean Band will treat the audience to a live performance of their new album, “FrankenClime” — a humor-infused, danceable rock ‘n’ roll monster mash spotlighting the environmental challenges of the times.
In addition to the music this action-packed event includes a “Trashy Fashion” runway show produced by Ellie Treanor and RC Ferris., Guests are encouraged to join the fun by wearing their best upcycled/re-designed clothing or homemade costumes sourced from recycled materials.
Plan to arrive at 6pm to make a trashy fashion accessory—a favorite activity for kids and the young at heart alike. Learn more about Save Mount Diablo and Sustainable Walnut Creek. A selection of vendors will showcase their services or sell their unique “sustainability products”, plus MCE will be on hand to provide education about clean energy options.
Premium beer/wine and yummy snacks/desserts will be available for sale, courtesy of Sustainable Contra Costa.
Plan to bring something for the sustainability-in-action “Bring an item, take an item” table – a fun way to upcycle a like-new, no-longer-needed household item or an unwanted gift you’ve been holding onto—and perhaps leave with a new treasure of your own.
