Everglades Awareness Benefit Concert Information
Event features live music and painting, spoken word, an art exhibition, guest speakers and vendors, with all proceeds to be donated to Love the Everglades Movement
The Everglades Awareness Benefit Concert Series is an interactive gathering to share and voice concerns about our ecosystem. This is not a simple show - we are part of a movement that supports protecting our natural resources and human rights! We are working to strengthen our grassroots network and engage members of our community as we work to stop overdevelopment and political corruption! The exploitation of the Everglades effects us all and we need to recognize the damage of oil drilling, fracking and Turkey Point as major issues. We are advocating for more solar usage - this makes sense in the Sunshine State!
At the same time this event will be very entertaining, positive and fun! We can talk about serious issues with informative speakers while enjoying music, spoken word, dance, live art and good people. This is an all ages event because we want to reach out to young people and families. We strive to inspire involvement and participation. Together we make things happen, so join the fun and spread the word!
Thank you all for your effort!
