A few weeks back, Earth to Philly tipped you to what was sure to be a happening event - the Green Carpet Gala, which was held this past Saturday night at the Warwick Hotel off of Rittenhouse Square.
A fundraising party thrown by Peace Advocacy Network, a relatively new group of volunteer activists who care about animals, environmentalism and social justice, the Gala was a terrific success. A vegan dinner and desserts framed a night of dancing, speakers, video presentations and a silent auction, and doubtless helped raise a little consciousness along the way.
In the midst of the action Earth to Philly had a brief chat with PAN board member and event co-planner Allison Memmo Geiger to get the whole scoop on the Gala and PAN itself. Allison discusses how the group's goals dovetail with sustainability concerns and what they are planning next. You can hear it here in podcast form (MP3, 5 MB).
