The Green Butterfly Gala

The Center for Community Justice is partnering with Wellfield Botanic Gardens and 523 Tap & Grill for their newest event, The Green Butterfly Gala. It will be an evening of live entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and both live and silent auctions with art and art experience packages. We will showcase art created by local artists, including students from local high schools. Each piece will represent that artist’s unique interpretation of Restorative Justice. In addition, we will engage in a Drumming Circle to build a stronger sense of community, if only for one night. We hope that each of us leaves eager to be better connected in the future.

Tickets will be available starting March 1st on the Center for Community Justices Website. There will be special early bird pricing of $75/ticket until April 1st, when tickets will become $85 each.
