The future of our planet and the future of our youth came together on Saturday, February 7th, at Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall, as Kids Korps worked alongside of Eco Caters at ECO Ball 2009. This eco-friendly celebration showcased the rewards of sustainable living while raising funds to support the endeavors of Kid Korps, which teaches the youth of today the value of giving back for their future.

This one of a kind green event made every detail of the evening’s festivities incorporate green living. Invitations, signage, and all collateral material were printed with soy-based inks on recycled materials. Eco Caters created the evening’s completely organic menu and also provided organic beers, wines and liquors. The professional staff from Eco Caters treated everyone to some of their famous hors d’oeuvres, including Spicy Scallop and Shrimp Sausage, Beggars Purse with Cherry Shallot Jam and Camembert, Seared Ahi with Reduced Mirin and Blood Orange, Blue Cheese Bison Sliders with Caramelized Onion, and more. The entrée for the evening was Roasted Garlic Chicken Breast with Sundried Tomatoes and Pearl Onion on a bed of Orzo. And finally, to top off the night, guests enjoyed a Chocolate Molten Cake with Coconut Ganache for dessert. Who knew that going green could be so elegant and taste so great?
