The Eco Gala is proud to welcome Dr. Courtney Howard as our keynote speaker for the evening. Dr. Howard is an Emergency Physician in Yellowknife, in Canada’s subarctic, and a Clinical Associate Professor in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary. She is a nationally- and globally recognized expert on the impacts of climate change on health, and in the broader field of planetary health. She will show us how to apply big ideas to our small, local context and explain how "less CO2, more health" helps us solve two crises at once. Dr. Howard will also be answering your questions live in the second half of the show!

The Complete Stay-at-Home Gala Experience includes a gift bag filled with goodies! Sit back and let us do the work with a wonderful meal and featured products that support your community! But hurry, because once they're gone - they're gone!

Inside of this beautiful locally designed tote-bag you’ll find:   


  • A delicious 2 course meal prepared by Thyme & Again, featuring a Quinoa salad with Chickpeas, Roasted  Peppers, Broccoli, and a vegan Balsamic Vinaigrette, followed by a vegan Roasted Vegetable Curry with Rice    and Lentil Pilaf, with a side of naan
  • A Hand-crafted Brownie from Strawberry Blonde, and a free cupcake coupon
