Finally, on April 11th at the Bel Air Bay Club in the Pacific Palisades is the Grades of Green, “Verte 2013” honoring Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company. This will be a really fun night in a fabulous setting over-looking the Pacific Ocean with cocktails, dinner and live entertainment. Grades of Green was founded in Manhattan Beach three years ago by four of my girlfriends and today they are in 4 countries, 26 states and over 165 schools. How cool is that? Their mission is to inspire and empower kids and the broader school community to care for the environment. This years’ Verte 2013 is going to be a very special night. Tickets are available at www.GradesofGreen.org.
I hope to see you at all of these fabulous events benefiting three very deserving local charities!
