Join EESI for the 7th Environmental and Clean Energy Inaugural Ball
It is with great pleasure that we announce the 7th Environmental and Clean Energy Inaugural Ball on Monday, January 21, 2013. The event, co-organized by EESI,
will once again be held at the beautiful Sequoia Restaurant located on the Washington Harbour waterfront in Georgetown from 8:00 PM to Midnight.
This bi-partisan celebration has become a Washington tradition over the past 24 years as the environmental and clean energy communities gather to welcome a new Administration
and make headway towards a more sustainable future. Carol Werner, Executive Director of EESI, is once again serving on the Ball’s Organizing Committee.
All previous Environmental and Clean Energy Inaugural Balls have been recognized by the Presidential Inaugural Committees. This year’s bi-partisan Honorary Committee is comprised of
31 Members of the House and Senate who have distinguished themselves as environmental and clean energy policy leaders. We are pleased to announce that Secretary of the Interior
Ken Salazar will be one of our Honored Guests, as will Bob Perciasepe, Deputy Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Tickets are $200 per person, which includes an open bar, a full dinner buffet, and a great band for dancing and entertainment! (The ticket price is set to simply cover the event’s cost and does not
therefore constitute a donation).

Sponsorship and table sales are also available. Please note there is a processing fee for online orders.
We hope you agree to join us as we all work together to build ever greater support for the environment and the sustainability of our nation’s future.
