Sustainable Lafayette will kick off fall with its annual "Sustainable Sunday" fundraiser on Sunday, October 9th from 2pm-5pm at Metro Lafayette. This year's fundraiser will support Sustainable Lafayette's newest initiative, the Lafayette Open Space Project. The event will feature sustainably produced appetizers and beverages, live music, and a silent auction with items from Bay Area artists and businesses. This year's speakers will discuss "the broader impact of local action" and include Ben Simon, CEO of Imperfect Produce, Alexandra McGee, Community Power Organizer of MCE, and Edie Irons, Communications Director of TransFormCA. The proceeds of the auction will directly benefit the Lafayette Open Space Project, which seeks to preserve and protect Lafayette's undeveloped resources. The fundraiser will also support other programs, including the Lafayette Earth Day Festival, the Summer Environmental Film series, and the Green Schools project. Tickets are $75 for adults and $35 for college, high school and younger students. Tickets are available at: SustainableSunday2016.eventbrite.com
