If you’re like me and grew up watching Captain Planet, you’re probably pretty psyched there’s now an organization in the planetary hero’s name — aptly titled the Captain Planet Foundation.

This years the foundation is holding their 14th annual Xmas Party in Atlanta, GA to raise money for their work supporting hands-on environmental projects for youth in grades K-12.  The event will feature musical guests such as Rolling Stones keyboardist and Georgia tree farmer Chuck Leavell, Night Ranger singer Jack Blade, .38 Special’s Jeff Carlisi and the Romantics’ Wally Palmar. The evening will also include a cameo by celebrity guest Chevy Chase and his environmentalist wife, Jayni. 

Oh yeah, and for all you fashion-curious folks out there, Turner Seydel, chairwoman for the organization will be wearing an eco-friendly dress made out of sustainable silk, courtesy of a “free-range silk worm that was allowed to turn into a moth.” Go, Turner! 

The event will be held Dec. 12 at the Tabernacle in downtown Atlanta and sounds like it will be a blast! To find out more, visit xmasparty.org!
