Take a trip . . . to Middle Earth!

Haven’t had a chance to take that summer vacation yet?  Don’t worry – Sierra Club has you covered!

Join us for our Annual Fundraiser at Ravinia on August 19th and we will sweep you away to an entirely different world!

This year’s event features a screening of the film The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring, with a live performance of the movie score by the world renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Largely shot on location in New Zealand, the film makes use of that country’s unique natural features to bring J.R.R. Tolkein’s Middle Earth to life.  Tolkein’s story has been interpreted as a commentary on the destruction caused to the natural environment by industrialization.  Hear what other like-minded Sierra Club members have to say over a delicious dinner and drinks prior to the movie, and then find out for yourself as the CSO and Ravinia take you on a trip you’ll never forget!

Tickets are $75 per person.  Reserve your spot today!

Where: Ravinia Festival Park, 200 Ravinia Park Road, Highland Park IL
