SustainaBall is the region's premier event for celebrating the localism movement and impact economy in Greater Philadelphia. Join us at our jovial annual gala and demonstrate your commitment to business as a force for good. All proceeds support SBN's mission to build a just, green, and thriving economy in the region.

Guests will enjoy local food from Birchtree Catering and local libations while mingling with triple bottom line (people-planet-profit) business owners, thought leaders, activists, decision-makers, and other like-minded colleagues who are committed to growing a vibrant economy that serves community needs and protects the environment. 

At SustainaBall, we are raffling off two big-ticket prizes: a business valuation and a night out on the town for two. All proceeds from the raffle support SBN’s mission to build a just, green, and thriving local economy.

Preparing to sell your business is far from the only reason to seek an accurate business valuation. Valuation helps you obtain proper insurance coverage, provide accurate reports to potential investors, set strategic goals, and begin succession planning. B-Certified Kregel & Company CPA has generously donated their services to offer the winner a full business valuation. (This prize is valued at $1500.) 

Our second big-ticket raffle prize is a memorable “night out on the town” for two. The winners will begin their Center City evening at the celebrated High Street on Market before enjoying a show at The Wilma Theater. They will be greeted with a Good Kharma Cafe gift basket upon arrival at the new Good Kharma café and bar in the lobby of the theatre. We recommend a nice nighttime stroll back to Old City before the winners turn in at the boutique hotel Lokal for a night’s stay. 

This year, as part of our program, we will recognize the nearly 200 businesses in the region who took the Best for PHL Challenge in 2017. SBN is proud to be a lead partner in the Best for PHL initiative, which empowers the region's businesses to improve their triple bottom line through awareness and connection to resources.

SBN Members receive a 20% discount on tickets. Best for PHL participants receive an additional 10% discount on tickets. Best for PHL participants should email Bradford Bucknum at [email protected] for the discount code.
