Through April 5: WOW Gala

Instead of a one night in-person event, this gala for Childsplay has become an online campaign of passion. Patrons can enjoy an online medley of sights, sound and solidarity from the comfort of their own homes. An auction features items such as a night out, jewelry, and artwork. There is a raffle for a chance to win a stocked 30-bottle wine cooler. Raffle tickets are $50 each or $100 for three tickets. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 6. Participants can also take part in a wine pull where they purchase a mystery wine bottle for $25, but bottles can be valued up to $200.

April 22-25: Earthx2020 in Partnership with the National Geographic Society

Founded in 2011, EarthX has become the world’s largest environmental expo and conference.

Most of the conferences will be held between April 23-27, but some will continue into the month of May. These webinars are a great way to learn about the environmental challenges the Earth is currently experiencing. Originally, the expo also included a film festival, but it was moved into the fall at the EarthXGlobal Gala. The EarthXLaw and EarthXEnergy’s Responsible Energy Acquisition conferences will also be held live in the fall. The 50th Anniversary Earth Day Celebration will be live-streamed on April 22.
