Benefit for Mary Beth Doyle Fund
One of the Ecology Center’s best-loved traditions, the annual Dance for the Earth, is making a comeback this month, but “unplugged” and in an all-new venue and format.
This year’s event will be held at Bill's Beer Garden, at 218 S. Ashley Street in Ann Arbor, Sunday, June 29, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Dance for the Earth will benefit the Mary Beth Doyle Environmental Health Fund, which supports the Ecology Center’s campaigns on environmental health issues. Doyle, who worked for 15 years with environmental organizations including the Sierra Club, Greenpeace and the Ecology Center, was involved in planning the first ‘Dance for the Earth’ when she died in 2004.
“This fund supports urgent work that could not otherwise be funded, particularly focused on clean air, safe consumer products, and women's and children's environmental health,” according to Ecology Center director Mike Garfield. “We hope our supporters will join us to honor and remember Mary Beth’s great contributions, enjoy some music, and have a good time, all for a great cause."
Bill’s Beer Garden, which is located in what during the day serves as a parking lot for Downtown Home and Garden, will donate $1 per drink served during the benefit.
Musician Dave Keeney and friends will play some acoustic sets during the evening.
