GalaVerde 2013, South Florida's
LEEDership and Green Awards Program,
 Delivers Rave Reviews!

By all accounts, GalaVerde 2013 was a fantastic success! A handsome crowd of
375 attendees turned
out on September 21 to recognize and honor those outstanding projects, inspirational businesses, dedicated individuals, and instrumental Chapter members who are LEEDing the way to a more sustainable built environment in our South Florida community. 

John Picard, President of John Picard & Associates and one of the preeminent environmental consultants in North America, wowed the crowd with a tremendously inspirational keynote address, and Tim Center, Executive Director of Sustainable Florida and Principal of Centerfield Strategy, kept the evening moving and attendees entertained. 

The Silent Auction (bidding via cell phones) and pre- and post-event receptions got thumbs-up reviews from attendees, and one
would be hard-pressed to attend a program that had stronger GREENworking or more smiling faces. All in all, GalaVerde, sponsored by The Spinnaker Group, rocked the house and raised monies to support the Chapter's important educational efforts.
