You Gotta' Fight For What You Believe In: And For Your Right To Party


Cherished friend and fierce eco advocator Evan Little, a real estate agent for local green real estate company Surterre Properties, is kind of like The Gazette's "in" to the growing green movement in Orange County. If there's a green mixer, fundraiser, or event, Evan knows about it. And he's not stingy with his knowledge, but shares it freely via facebook, twitter, linkedin and whatever other social media outlet he can get his hands on. Today I got an invitation to one such event.

Ecofficiency.org is a local non-profit started by OC natives Jesse Baker and Chrissy Gray to help create "a free and fair market-based consumer system that maximizes positive impacts to our planet." In short, Ecofficiency.org wants to educate the community on social equality, living green, and sustainability. Jesse and Chrissy are ready to fight for what they believe in, and as the Beastie Boys so eloquently sang (or screamed?), "you gotta fight for your right to party." Seemingly unrelated causes to fight for, I know, but not on Saturday October 17th,2009. This Saturday Ecofficiency.org will hold the 1st Annual Endless Summer Benefit Concert that will unite green/social awareness with all the food, drink, and live music expected of a great party. Musical acts will include Marc B., The Pawn Shop Kings, Humanlab, and Kacie Yoshida, with DJ's spinning to fill the silence in between. Each $20 ticket to the event includes entry and 2 cocktails, beer, or wine. The night will also include local art exhibitions and a silent auction. That's a steal folks! Where else could you get such a fun filled evening of music, art, food, wine, and good company for only $20, and all with a good conscience? Exaaactly.

What: Ecofficiency Endless Summer Benefit Concert
When: October 17, 2009
Where: 1630 Pomona Ave., Costa Mesa, CA
Sponsors: Marko Foam, Green Events, Barefoot Wines, Tru Organic Spirits, Green Truck on the Go, J&M Marketing Group
