An Evening with Gord Downie
Join Gord Downie the evening of Thursday, October 3rd for a remarkable performance of song and conversation. This ticketed event is open to the public and will help raise funds for the Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, an organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the quality of waterways throughout the Buffalo Niagara Region. The event also kicks off the 2013 Conference on the Environment.
Doors open at 6:00 PM when the Western New York Environmental Alliance will showcase the work of environmental organizations from across the region. Downie will take the stage at 7:30 PM. A full cash bar will be available from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM.
Although Downie is best known as the front man for the band, The Tragically Hip, over the years he has become a strong advocate for water resource protection. As a member of the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, much of Downie's environmental activism has been focused on the Canadian side of Lake Ontario. However, the health of the Great Lakes has no political boundary, nor does our interest in protecting the largest source of fresh water on the planet.
An Evening with Gord Downie is sponsored by the New York State Association of Conservation Commissions (NYSACC), New York State Association of Environmental Management Councils (NYSAEMC), the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning, and the Niagara Region Integrated Community Planning Department, and is made possible through the generous contributions of Ecology and Environment, Inc., The Community Foundation of Greater Buffalo, and National Grid.
The 2013 Conference on the Environment is a program of NYSACC and NYSAEMC and has been brought to Buffalo thanks to a partnership with the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning and the Niagara Region Integrated Community Planning Department. The conference will take place October 3-5, 2013 at the Adam's Mark Hotel in downtown Buffalo and is dedicated to helping the public and those in the environmental and allied fields respond to environmental opportunities and challenges relevant to communities across the United States and Canada. Registration is $95 and includes all conference sessions, select meals, and a ticket to An Evening with Gord Downie. For full conference details, please visit our website, http://coe2013.org.
