The Sierra Club's Rocky Mountain Chapter proudly presents its Annual Winter Gala -- a fun-filled evening featuring an exciting presentation from Michael Brune, dinner, silent auction and awards ceremony to celebrate our Chapter's most inspiring volunteer activists.
You are invited to attend this special, momentous occasion and hear from a national leader in the environmental cause and the Executive Director of Sierra Club, Michael Brune, as he presents us his vision of where we are now and where we are heading as a movement, intertwined with sharing his experience of his cross-country trip across the nation this past summer to key battleground areas in the fight for a cleaner and fairer future. It is especially thrilling to have Michael here as our state was one of his early stops on his tour. You can bet he will have a lot to share regarding his time here with us.
Seating is limited to 100 people, so get your tickets now for this opportunity to experience first-hand Sierra Club and environmental activism history, all while getting in some holiday shopping and supporting your Chapter.
