Philanthropist Simona Beal serves as Honorary Chair, entrepreneur Greg Nieberding as Chair and Trammell S. Crow as Chair Emeritus alongside a number of supporters including entrepreneur and television personality D’Andra Simmons. EarthxGlobal Gala is a tremendous opportunity to engage with influential and passionate EarthX advocates and help raise money to fund the organization’s many worthy initiatives and actions including year-round programs designed to educate and raise environmental awareness. This mission was the catalyst for Beal’s involvement in this year’s gala, “My decision to chair this year’s gala was based on multiple factors,” she explains. “The most important of which, was bringing recognition to the importance of protecting our beautiful planet. As more and more of our world is damaged by thoughtless practices, it’s increasingly important to purposely choose to help our environment.”  In addition to an evening of delightful bites, live and silent auction, country music superstar LeAnn Rimes will perform as part of the musical entertainment!
