ECOlution 2011- The Melissa Carter Foundation
In typical ReMix fashion, we emphasize the message of "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". Whether it's your typical household waste, that beat up vintage duffle bag or even human beings...our company culture exemplifies the beauty of a second chance. And we often meet other organizations and individuals that feel exactly the same. Case and point...The Melissa Carter Foundation and ECOlution 2011.
ReMix Recycling is exhilarated to be a proud sponsor and provide our recycling services at ECOlution 2011. This third annual event, created by transplant recipient and media personality, Melissa Carter, will be held Thursday, October 13th from 7pm to 10pm at Tongue & Groove at 565 Main Street in Atlanta, Georgia. Hosted by Chip Powell of Whole World Theatre with music by DJ Camille, ECOlution benefits The Melissa Carter Transplant Fund and the Georgia Transplant Foundation and features silent and live auctions that includes tickets to see Adele, Sugarland, Disney on Ice, as well as Jay-Z & Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne” concert.
Presented by Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta, ECOlution combines a traditional runway fashion show with an important message that urges guests to recycle themselves – not just paper and plastic. Celebrities, men and women affected by organ transplantation, and other special guests are the featured models of the fashion show, giving guests an opportunity to truly connect with the transplant community. Recycling is the theme of the evening, but it’s about more than just sorting paper from plastic. The benefiting organizations help those who depend on the ultimate act of recycling – receiving a new kidney, heart, liver or lungs to give them a second chance at life.
“We want to show the impact of organ donation, because many of us would not be here today without it,” said Melissa Carter, ECOlution creator and kidney transplant recipient. “Whether it’s giving the gift of life to another person, or in the way we express ourselves through fashion, we want to encourage the choice to recycle.”
Tickets to the event are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. VIP tickets are available for $75 and include complimentary cocktails, a gift bag, as well as preferential, reserved seating during the fashion show. To purchase tickets, please visit www.gatransplant.org/happenings/ecolution
We love what we do. And furthermore we love to connect with powerful organizations that in their own right convey the importance of recycling, whether it be plastic...or people. We look forward to seeing you there!
