The team at Eco-Works proved themselves bravely faithful and worthy of the 35 year anniversary it celebrated at the Detroit Yacht Club last Friday. Centering the celebration around the Spirit of its people, partnerships, and mission, the Sustainable Community Champion Awards Ceremony held a far different energy this year. An honest, personal, and commitment filled thread weaved its way through the program in a rare and courageous way that left the attendees inspired and motivated for the future growth of not only the city, but the nation as a whole on it’s determined path for a sustainable tomorrow.
Held each year at the Detroit Yacht Club, the peaceful and elegant entrance up to the second floor to watch the sun rise above the water was reason enough to attend. The history and original architecture of the event based facility included a buffet-style breakfast offering, spilling over and above the servicing warmers with something for everyone. White linened tables were embellished with signage for sponsor acknowledgement and green floral centerpieces, held in Reclaim Detroit wooden vases. New faces were sprinkled in with veterans of the breakfast, all in anticipation of seeing the awards presented and keynote speaker Winona LaDuke.More
