October 15th - RayDay Save the Date
RayDay is an annual celebration that brings people together, encourages conversations and connections, and continues to spread the word about sustainability. It is a celebration of Ray Anderson's legacy. Imagine a one-day course on sustainable living, outdoors in a Serenbe country meadow with over 2,200 other classmates. It's tons of fun for the whole family, with great food and drink and more than 60 sustainability-focused learning booths, and much more. It was Ray Anderson’s tireless efforts to make this a better world for Tomorrow’s Child that inspired the creation of RayDay.
