Green Wish, a Los-Angeles-based environmental group, is launching a Kansas chapter with a free event at 7 p.m. June 21 at the Oread Hotel, 1200 Oread Ave.
The group will raise environmental activism awareness and funds for environmental groups in Lawrence and Kansas City, said Victoria Bogner, president of the Kansas Green Wish board of directors. The board will have its first meeting earlier that day and begin the process of deciding which groups to fund. The event will be hosted by actor and co-founder Raphael Sbarge.
