2nd annual In Defense of Water fundraiser was a great success!
With the support of our generous sponsors and guests, we raised over $30,000!! Our guests enjoyed fresh, local food from La Prima Catering and beer from Sweetwater Brewing, mingled with Waterkeepers, grooved to the Wendy Steve Jazz Band and bought exciting silent auction items. This year, we honored Nick DiPasquale, former Director of the Chesapeake Bay Program, for his dedication to restoring the Chesapeake Bay and all of its tributaries.
Funds rasied this year benefited our Conowingo Dam Campaign. We are working with the State of Maryland to ensure that the water released from the dam meets basic water quality standards. Communities downstream on the Susquehanna River are depnding on us to ensure that the dam operators meet this very reasonable and fair requirement.
