CEC is committed to creating a more resilient and just region in the face of climate change. Through our work with the Central Coast Climate Justice Network and elsewhere, our vision includes an end to racial injustices and their resulting environmental inequities.

You are cordially invited to the eco-chic party of the year, the Community Environmental Council’s 2016 Green Gala, on Friday, September 30th, at 6:30pm.  Join us at The Lark as we celebrate “Our Local Bounty,” and CEC’s work toward a clean and green community for all.

We are excited about returning to The Lark, the acclaimed Funk Zone restaurant. The Lark’s chefs are creating a menu just for the Green Gala, with a focus on family style dishes sourced from local farms and accompanied by artisanal cocktails and local wines.

The Community Environmental Council’s annual Green Gala not only delights guests with a beautiful setting, it also offers the chance to tell our story to a group of influential and visionary friends. CEC’s small but mighty staff is dedicated to moving our region away from dependence upon fossil fuels and addressing the challenges of climate change. A Santa Barbara region powered by clean energy creates a healthier community for every living thing. CEC’s five initiatives – Drive Less, Choose Electric, Go Solar, Ditch Plastic and Eat Local – allow everyone to engage and embody our vision for a green Santa Barbara.

At the 2016 Green Gala, celebrate with us as we envision that clean energy future over an amazing meal with friends under the stars.

We promise you an incredibly memorable night!
