Chris Castro is an award winning sustainability professional, eco-entrepreneur, and community organizer with a passion for accelerating the transition to a smart, resilient and sustainable future. Chris Castro is most notably known for his work as the founder and president of IDEAS For Us, an international nonprofit and United Nations accredited organization working to develop, fund, and scale environmental solutions around the World; and co-creator of the renowned “Fleet Farming” urban agriculture program that started in Orlando. Clayton Louis Ferrara is a poet, naturalist and the Executive Director of the United Nations Accredited NGO, IDEAS For Us. He is a classically trained biologist and world traveler who has conducted research on five continents on evolutions, conservation, and ecology. His work as leader of IDEAS focuses on advancing sustainability through the creation of solutions that benefit people, heal the planet, and transform communities. To RSVP, please complete your luncheon reservation here no later than midnight, Tuesday, September 4th, 2018, to ensure sufficient seating. Luncheon check-in begins at 11:30 a.m. and the luncheon program will begin promptly at Noon. Cancellations must be received no later than this same time (via email at firstname.lastname@example.org). Because the Citrus Club charges CFAWL according to the total RSVP number, and CFAWL is a non-profit organization which does not have the funds necessary to absorb luncheon costs, all who RSVP but do not cancel timely and do not attend the lunch will be invoiced in the amount of $30.00/person. We appreciate your understanding.

Table for Eight – 2018-2019 Season
Do you want to host a Table for Eight? CFAWL’s Table for Eight events are unique opportunities to mingle and get to know your fellow CFAWL members in a smaller and more relaxed setting! Typically, a Table for Eight event is hosted by one or two members. Some of the Table for Eight events in the past have been dinners, outdoor activities such as paddle boarding, brunches, activities around town, tastings or pairings, poker nights, and other game nights. The hosts have the opportunity to be creative and pick an activity of their choice. In the past, some hosts have even picked certain themes to pair with their activity. A host can pick how many people they would like to join in their activity. Usually, it includes at least seven CFAWL members and the host. However, if a host would like to co-host an event with another CFWAL member they can possible invite up to 10-15 members depending on the activity. The host will take care of all the associated costs of their event. The RSVP’s will be based on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to host, please contact Janki Thakkar at JankiAThakkar@gmail.com wit

Table for Eight Hosts/Hostesses
We are looking for a few hostesses (and hosts) for Winter 2016 and Spring 2017 to welcome a small group of 8 members into their home (or somewhere of the host’s choosing) to host a dinner party. This is a “members only” exclusive privilege and is usually a sell-out event.
