Help celebrate SBN’s 16th anniversary and champion our region’s move to a more sustainable economy at SustainaBall 2017!
SustainaBall is the event for celebrating and supporting sustainability in the Greater Philadelphia Region! This event provides a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy local food and drink while mingling with sustainable thought leaders, activists, government officials, business owners, and other like-minded colleagues who are committed to SBN’s mission of building a green, just, and thriving economy. Both live music and a DJ will get the crowd dancing to cap this inspirational and unforgettable night.
To help raise the funds critical to advancing our mission, the auction will return to showcase local products and services from the Greater Philadelphia region. This year, we’ll host an online version of the auction in advance of the event, giving members and donors even more opportunity to promote their products and services!
