This event will feature a Cocktail Hour, Dinner Gala, Legacy & Luminary Awards Ceremony, and Dessert Reception. The evening will kick off with cocktails, live music, and networking followed by a delicious seated dinner. Guests will have an opportunity to network and dine with green building experts, innovators, movers, and shakers!

Next, guests will head into the beautiful auditorium for the Legacy & Luminary Awards Ceremony (which will feature comments from a soon-to-be-announced Keynote Speaker), and close out the night with delectable desserts and drinks.

GBA will honor PNC Financial Group’s Gary Saulson with our Legacy Award, and our Luminary (“People’s Choice”) Award winner will be determined through an open nomination and voting process.
