With your support, we raised more $39,000 in support of the Fund-a-Need supporting the new Joint Volunteer Program. With a more structured, coordinated, and robust united program, volunteers will provide support well beyond our staff capacity. Working together with citizen stewards, we can increase capacity for land restoration, park maintenance, education programs, outdoor recreation, and citizen science monitoring - inside and outside park boundaries.

Only through people willing to give is our work possible. Special thanks to the more than ten volunteers, our hard-working Conservancy staff, The Acreage at Osceola, and many more who shared their support of this successful event.

WAYS TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT AT THE FUNDRAISER

We've all heard the phrase, "Your presence is really present enough. " And we sure do mean that! Your continued support has been a driving force in supporting the protection and stewardship of our wild & scenic rivers. We look forward to and thank you for your attendance at this year's event. 

Our annual fundraiser is certainly a night of fun but is also an important night for the Conservancy. Protecting over 200 river miles takes a lot of resources - with people being the most invaluable resource of all. As we look towards the future and assess the needs of the Riverway, what we need are boots on the ground to help us and our partners achieve the work that is imperative to promoting the health of the watershed while creating new opportunities for stewardship.

Volunteers are at the heart of what makes the expansion of these initiatives possible. This year's Fund-A-Need program will focus on the rewards, opportunities, and successes that the gifts of time and talent afford the Riverway and how we can do more to champion those that share these gifts.

Should you feel inspired to show your additional support, preview the items featured in this year's live auction or come prepared to raise your paddle. Eat. Drink. Celebrate. Give.
