4/9: RFK Jr. at EcoWatch's Green Gala

Cleveland-based EcoWatch was into “green” before the concept was on everyone’s lips. Now a statewide nonprofit devoted to sustainability issues, EcoWatch began as a newspaper published by local environmental activist Stefanie Spear, offering roundup of local and national stories on efforts to create a more ecologically friendly world. EcoWatch is hosting its second annual benefit to fund its work, and they’ve snagged a big name to speak: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Unlike some of his ill-fated siblings and cousins, RFK Jr. has escaped the shadow of his famous family and his own checkered past to establish himself as a leading voice on environmental issues like clean water, wind power and global warming. EcoWatch’s Green Gala takes place at Executive Caterers (6111 Landerhaven Dr., Mayfield Hts.) at 7 p.m. It includes appetizers, dinner, a drink ticket and a silent auction. Tickets are $100, but student discounts are available. Visit the web site or call 216.387.1609 for more info. — Anastasia Pantsios
