Chipapalooza GREEN

May 9 - Noon
College Park, Maryland

The Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE) is proud to announce Chipapalooza GREEN on May 9th at noon at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 9450 Cherry Hill Road, College Park, MD 20740. The show will raise awareness of environmental problems in Maryland and all profits will be donated to the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education. The event will feature live music starting at noon, great outdoor activities, guest speakers, food and beverages, merchandise, and a marketplace for green businesses to showcase their products and services.

Three high school friends, Chip Hiden, Chris Trenner, and Pat Gibson, started the Chipapalooza Charity Concert that was first held in Hiden's backyard, and began by raising more than $1000 dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. More than 300 enthusiastic people attended and demanded that the concert become an annual tradition. Since then, the concert has continued to grow, being held in bigger venues, featuring nationally touring acts, and raising more money for charity. Now in its fifth year, the planners are looking forward to their biggest concert yet with Chipapalooza GREEN. All MAEOE members, friends and family -- and friends of the environment and environmental education -- are encouraged to attend. For more information, visit: Chipapalooza.com.
