ECOMB’s GreenRaiser

Presented by Adam R. Rose and Peter R. McQuillan from AP Beach


Join the Environmental Coalition of Miami & the Beaches (ECOMB), one of Miami-Dade County’s leading non-profits promoting sustainability, as we host our Annual “GreenRaiser” event at the Sagamore, The Art Hotel, on April 21, Miami Beach. Acting as the ultimate Earth Day event in South Florida, ECOMB will celebrate our community’s best environmental leaders and friends, honor visionaries in the “green” category and top contributors to ensuring sustainability, and welcome local environmental organizations to come together on one night for one cause.

After arrival in SWOOP electric transport or discounted valet on Hybrid cars, guests will be welcomed at Sagamore Hotel by eco-fashion presentations by Art of Shade and Elite Models. Beyond the door, eco power players will walk down a green grass carpet and be welcomed with organic cocktails by VeeV. VIP guests will enter the Video Garden decorated with recycled flower arrangements from Karla Events and enjoy bites by Whitewall restaurant and live Bossa Nova band, Rose Max & Ramatis. As the event continues, additional guests and ECOMB members will join to celebrate with the sounds of DJ Sahyo, spinning select sounds from artists with the “Green Music Alliance” and enjoy organic fruits and desserts by Whole Foods. Eco-enthusiasts and community influencers will honor our community’s top “Green” leaders with the presentation of ECOMB’s Emerald City Awards to Mondrian Hotel, Commissioner Jerry Libbin and Commissioner Michael Gongora. VIP guests will leave with a sustainable G3 Give Bag loaded with green goodies.

ECOMB’s GreenRaiser will bring together a variety of people, products, and practices of sustainability to life.  This event aims to create awareness for Miami and Miami Beach’s environmental issues and serve as ECOMB’s main fundraiser. It will enable ECOMB to continue implementing initiatives to protect and preserve our local community’s ecosystem as well as initiate its efforts towards the restoration of its new environmental education center: the Miami Beach Center for the Environment.
