April’s EARTH DAY CELEBRATION was unforgettable. From the moment Ireland Brown raised our beautiful new Earth flag to the last beat of Hard Hattie’s driving rhythms, the day was more than special. It was extraordinary! EARTH DAY profits exceeded $3,300, all of which will help to support this year’s summer camps for kids. More importantly, the event yielded Happiness. Throughout the day and into the night, people smiled, laughed, danced, played, and enjoyed being alive and together. We are grateful to the following singers, musicians, artists, “international celebrity” models, merchants, bakers, volunteers and organizations for their generous help in making our EARTH DAY CELEBRATION happen:
