Prepare to Be Delighted at the ReThink Energy Ball
We’re so excited to be able to gather in-person again for our 2021 Energy Ball. Come participate in our Green Outfit Contest, a silent auction, and Energy Innovator Award recognition while enjoying live music from Dylan Ragpicker Allen, Common ‘Taters & the Turn-Ups and Hot Tamale. For extra fun, brave attendees can opt-in to show off their dance moves during the event.
While we’re happy we are no longer at the height of the pandemic, we are aware we are still in it and different guests have different levels of risk tolerance. However, we know ReThinkers both follow science and are considerate of their fellow Floridians.
To help ensure safety for us all, especially for those who are still unable to be vaccinated, we ask the following.
- If you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination but have made the choice to not be vaccinated, please plan to participate virtually only.
- All guests keep a safe social distance. Tables will be more spaced out than at previous balls.
- Masking is expected in all indoor space for everyone, unless eating or drinking. We will have Energy Ball masks available!
- Weather permitting, we will have the band and some tables outdoors to increase ventilation.
- Our venue, the Carriage House at Goodwood, is already well ventilated, but also invested in a filtration system during the pandemic in order to host the orchestra and other groups we enjoyed streaming during the height of the pandemic.
The Energy Ball is ReThink Energy Florida’s annual fundraiser and it is vital to the success of our organization. The funds raised will support the ReThink Science Engagement Program that provides STEM-based school and afterschool projects and instruction. This project was created because our virtual energy camp was such a success that we were inspired to provide a similar experience in an after school program for the 21/22 year. ReThink Energy project managers will virtually lead students through hands-on activities such as building solar bugs and testing soil and air. Your support of the Energy Ball will fund this important program through Spring of 2022.
In addition to offering tickets to our action-packed Energy Ball, we have some really fun options that will delight you while supporting ReThink Energy Florida. Choose a few of your favorites for yourself or as a gift.
