On September 20th, our community will come together at the 9th Annual Contra Costa Leadership in Sustainability & Green Building Awards Gala to celebrate and honor those who demonstrate outstanding commitment and leadership in making Contra Costa communities healthy, beautiful, clean, and resilient - for the long run.
Join us for a wonderful night of inspiration and celebration! This fun and inspiring event supports and celebrates local individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions and commitment to a healthy environment, economy, and society - so that Contra Costa remains a wonderful place for generations to come.
This year our theme is "Our Choices, Our Impact", focusing on the choices we make as consumers and how these choices affect the environment around us.
The awards program will also feature our Visionary Partner Central Contra Costa Sanitary District presenting their Pollution Prevention Awards. New this year is our Benefactor Partner, the Contra Costa Green Business Program presenting new and re-certified green businesses.
The event will begin with a reception on the Hilton Concord's beautiful patio where guests will enjoy food, wine and beer from our local, sustainable Partners such as True Food Kitchen, Sunrise Bistro, Chef Lauren Mahlke, DVC Culinary Arts, Bowl Brazil Superfoods Cafe, Captain and Viano Vineyards and Calicraft Brewing, live music and a silent auction featuring local goods and services.
