The Ecology Action Center invites you to attend the fourteenth annual Sustainable Gourmet on Thursday, November 14, at 5:30 p.m. This year’s event will feature artisanal local foods hors d’oeuvres prepared by the culinary team at Epiphany Farms, a sampling of sustainably produced wine from Uptown Normal’s Stave Wine Bar, and locally crafted beer from Keg Grove Brewing Company and Emancipation Brewing.
This popular fundraiser for the EAC includes a silent auction with fabulous items from local businesses, organizations, and individuals. Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit the Ecology Action Center and its important environmental sustainability efforts in Bloomington-Normal and McLean County. As part of this event, the Ecology Action Center will announce the 2019 recipients of the annual McLean County Green Awards, recognizing efforts to improve our local environment.
