Don't miss out on an exquisite fusion of Fire & Ice at the 2024 Green Gala!

The Event

The Greenway Ladies Guild is proud to present the 8th annual Green Gala: Fire & Ice. As with each year, the Green Gala will evoke for guests the delight and magic of the theme, selected and brought to life by the members of the Guild, who handpick each element with intention. This year’s fundraising event will feature some of Charlotte’s top culinary talent and the popular Next Level Band of Charlotte. The night provides incredible support for the Anne Springs Close Greenway’s mission of connecting people to nature through recreation, education and conservation efforts that are felt not just locally, but throughout the region.
