On the evening of Saturday, September 14, join members of The Green Project for their Salvations 2013 cocktail party and gala at The Shops at Canal Place. For the sixth year, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the best of eco-friendly design while supporting the organization’s sustainability initiatives. Per the event’s website, be ready to “clean up and get down… benefiting the city’s oldest local environmental non-profit.”

Making up this year’s musical entertainment will be the folk and jazz sounds of Small Batch String Band and Linnzi Zaorski respectively. In addition, representatives from The New Movement comedy troupe will be on hand to perform some of their signature improv, sketch and standup routines. Rounding out the evening’s roster will be the incomparable Andrew Ward, acting as emcee, auctioneer and roaster.

Not to be missed, plenty of food and drinks will be available for enjoyment. Complimenting a selection of delectable cuisine from over thirty local chefs, specialty cocktails will be hand-crafted using spirits from the catalogs of both Sailor Jerry and William Grant & Sons.

Finally, as the evening’s main attraction and highlight, one-of-a-kind furniture crafted from “reclaimed, recycled, re-purposed and re-imagined materials” will be available for attendees’ enjoyment and by-auction purchase.

Founded in New Orleans’ Mid-City as a “volunteer paint recycling group,” The Green Project has expanded into not only a resource for diverse, reused building materials, but also an educational force for the wider adoption of sustainable culture. The non-profit is dedicated to keeping still valuable materials out of our landfills, and in turn, providing them to community members at an affordable cost.
