Green Beer for a Green Planet live auction fundraiser, sponsored by Investors Group, in support of Elephant Thoughts and the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust.

6:30pm- Live music with local Celtic band Strange Potatoes, green refreshments.

7:30pm – Live auction fundraiser. 8pm - Film – Clean Bin Project.

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s day, we again celebrate with a live auction and green refreshments prior to the film. Last year’s evening was a great success and raised over $4,500 in support of Elephant Thoughts and the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust’s delivery of local environmental programs in schools. These hands-on workshops encourage the conservation of our ecologically sensitive wetlands, the promotion of alternative energy choices and the ability to make informed decisions on living in a way to protect our planet for future generations. Taught by skilled teachers, students participate in a number of interactive science-based activities, such as building solar cars, generating electricity using bikes, interacting with live native animals and using models to simulate the effects of pollution on the watershed system. Live auction items include – a weekend in Ottawa, Hybrid bike, paddling packages, Superpass for Blue Mountain, spa packages, and much more.

Be the Change Film Series: This documentary film series focusing on Ecological / Social Justice issues is held once a month at the Gayety Theatre on the third Wednesday of the month, from October to May. Presented by Investors Group, ‘Be The Change’ is meant to spark discussion amongst members of our community about the important issues facing us all. Each week after the film a guest speaker will hold interactive discussions in the Theater after the film is screened. This film series is growing in popularity and is films are often screened to a full theatre.

For more information about the Live Auction or the Film Series please contact Lisa Farano at 705-444-2012 x103 or email lisa@elephantthoughts.com.
