Greening the Bend planning Rain Barrel Ball

Greening the Bend is planning a Rain Barrel Ball fundraiser on September 7th at the Century Center in South Bend.  The purpose of the event is to raise funds for the Green Roof Project at the Century Center by auctioning off artistic rain barrels.

The Vice President for Greening the Bend, Krista Bailey, is optimistic about the opportunities this fundraiser could lead to.  "I am really excited to see that in place," Bailey said, "and see the community coming forward to put their money where their ideas are."

The Green Roof Project would place small trays with plants growing on them atop the Century Center.  Th trays would do a number of things including capturing rain water and preventing wasteful runoff.  It also would serve as insulation for the Century Center.

The event will feature food completely grown locally, with help from the Purple Porch Co-op.
