Eco-Justice Center’s 15-Year Anniversary Celebration

The Eco-Justice Center of Racine invites you to celebrate our 15-Year Anniversary on Saturday, April 4 at the Siena Center. This fun and casual fundraising event will feature small plates from our favorite local restaurants served buffet style with live music, cash bar, coffee and desert. Also featured will be a small silent auction of Eco-J themed gift packages and a one-hour program with a presentation by Milwaukee’s Compost Crusaders, a special Eco-J video, and a gratitude ceremony for the Center’s founders.

Tickets are $75 and include one free drink. Doors open at 5PM with food served until 6:30PM, and the program starts at 7PM. Our thanks to the Compost Crusaders who will help make this event as ZERO WASTE as possible. Purchase tickets at HERE.

Please Sponsor a Sister! Since the Eco-Justice Center was founded by Sisters of St. Dominic as a sponsored ministry of the Racine Dominicans, we are hoping to offer a special discounted rate to our Sisters who wish to attend. Our goal is to offer at least 35 of these special rate tickets. To help offset this cost we are asking for Sisters’ Ticket Sponsorships at a rate of $50 per ticket. To sponsor a sister with your donation, please contact Sister Rejane Cytacki at 262-681-8527 xtn.1

The Eco-Justice Center’s 15 Year Anniversary Celebration would not be possible without the help of our dedicated event volunteers S. Gayle Bogdanowitz, Linda Busha, Kathy Carson, Rick Fare, Laura Feider, Stacie Havron, Chris Jamieson and Nicole Reid.
