Before science was invented, going green used to mean chugging a 2-liter bottle of broccoli juice then spinning around a baseball bat for 30 seconds. Exercise a healthier expression of blue and yellow's love child with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one general-admission ticket (a $40 value) to the Junior League of Philadelphia's first Green Carpet Event fundraiser on Saturday, April 2 (rain date Saturday, April 9). The event runs from 7 p.m.–10:30 p.m. inside the majestic walls of Piazza at Schmidts on Hancock Street.
The Green Carpet Event treats Philadelphia denizens to an eco-friendly showcase of the latest trends in fashion and design. Honored guests can watch human mannequins pose in vogue apparel procured from several locations, including the local, earth-friendly Arcadia Boutique. Exposed clothing tags will wave like proud flags, representing well-known national brands such as Whitney Eve and Lilly Pulitzer. Between neck cranes and light applause, attendees will be able to enjoy light appetizers, desserts, and music designed to complement any loud look.
Proceeds from Green Carpet Event support The Junior League of Philadelphia's Project GREEN, an initiative focused on sustainable practices that can positively impact the health of the children of the future, the futuristic children's children, the cute panda bears, and nature.
