Big Green Gala

Big Green Chicago is getting so close to our most green and glamorous event of the year! On the eve of Wednesday, April 18, at the Ivy Room, Kimbal Musk, Albert Friedman and the Chicago team invite you to the Big Green Gala– a private event in support of our Chicago 200 Learning Garden Initiative, where we will dramatically expand our reach in Chicago Public Schools by serving 30% of schools in the district. We’ll be celebrating the initiative and the city that made it possible with cocktails, family-style meal, live auction and entertainment by the acclaimed Whitney.

This special event, and the entire Big Green Chicago region, wouldn’t be where it is today without the generous support of our friends and allies. We are so grateful to all of our sponsors, and our in-kind supporters, who make our efforts possible. Sponsorship and in-kind support ensure that all funds provided to Big Green Chicago go directly back in support of our mission, supporting Chicago Learning Garden Schools through our ongoing services and food literacy programs, while expanding our reach within the district.

Thanks for all you do to support our Chicago Learning Garden Initiative and contributing to the largest school garden initiative in the world. We hope to celebrate with you.
