The Darien Chamber of Commerce's recent seventh annual Going for Green awards and mixer was hosted by TD Bank in Darien.
Peter Saverine, of Star Inc. Lighting the Way, accepted the Darien Going for Green Founders Certificate, recognizing the effort he founded seven years ago.
The Going for Green Business Award was accepted by Carol Smith on behalf of the Darien Community Association's Darien Thrift Shop.
The "Darien Going for Green" poster contest first-place winner was Bobby Fitzpatrick. The runner-up was Darien High School senior Amanda Bieler, who will be attending Boston College in the fall. Dorine Bosler, DHS graphic arts instructor, had 23 students submit poster ideas to the contest this year. All posters can be viewed in the window at Fredric & Co., 1060 Post Road.
All winners and Bosler received a living air purifier plant courtesy of Nielsen's Florist and a certificate. The student winners also received goodie bags that included donations from Darien Single Stream Recycling, Darien Doughnut, Darien Chamber of Commerce, Darien Rowayton Bank and TD Bank.
Door prizes donated by TD Bank and the Darien chamber were won by Gigi Barrett, of the chamber, and Mark Rosenbloom, of First County Bank.
Laura Boulton Events provided food for chamber members, prospective members, guests and contest winners.
