What to Expect
Party for the Planet is a beer tasting event with live music and one of the best silent auctions in Summit County. Several local brewers will sample their wares and we’ll have wine thanks to Antler’s Liquor & Wine Cellar. Admission includes unlimited beer or wine sampling, a collectible glass, light snacks, and the Green Scene Awards highlighting local sustainability champions. It’s a fun night to catch up with friends and support local climate action. Come dressed in your jeans and favorite sweater or style it up with some mountain finery.

Ticket Information:
All tickets include admission to the event and silent auction, a light buffet-style dinner and unlimited beer or wine sampling.

General Advanced Tickets: $50


VIP tickets: $75
Don’t miss out on the VIP treatment
Upgrade to VIP for a collectible pint glass, early 5:30 entry, first opportunity to “buy it now” at the silent auction, and a special VIP-only gift from our local craft brewers.

Why the new name?

Party for the Planet is held in honor of HC3’s founder, Tim McClure. Not only did Tim start Summit’s first recycling program in 1976, he was a pioneer whose conservation ethic still exists today.

HC3 will honor Tim’s legacy with a new individual achievement award. And, the new event name – Party for the Planet – celebrates HC3’s work in climate action, water conservation and more. We hope you’ll join us on Friday, March 6 to party for the planet.
