Some of the things many of us are missing during this time of isolation include shared food and drinks, connecting with friends and colleagues, hugs and handshakes, and gathering for causes and missions that are important to us. 

Our GBA team has always cherished this time of year when we gather for our favorite Fall event and fundraiser – Emerald Evening.  And though we are going virtual this year, we don’t plan to miss out on some of these meaningful and magical things we treasure even when physically distanced! 

Emerald Evening is going to be a twopart affair this year. On September 23rd, gala participants will receive a special delivery with a familiar friendly smile right to your door from someone on our team that will include:

  • a delectable dessert of your choosing (chocolate, fruit, or vegan/gluten free) from La Gourmandine Bakery
  • a bottle of Petit Sirah or Chenin Blanc for our wine lovers or a Threadbare Cider or non-alcoholic beverage option if you please
  • Raffle tickets for the chance to win (and choose!) from a beautiful array of prizes that include handmade Monmade furnishings, original artwork from local artisans, restaurant gift certificates, power tools, and much more!
