Our 4th annual In Defense of Water will be an evening to celebrate our clean water successes and raise funds for, and awareness of, our work making all waters drinkable, swimmable and fishable. Sponsors and guests will have the opportunity to meet Waterkeepers from throughout the region and bid on exciting silent auction items while enjoying live music and fresh, local food from La Prima Catering. We will honor a local clean water champion and one of our Waterkeepers for outstanding achievements over the past year. An exciting addition to this year’s program is our VIP cocktail reception from 6:00pm – 7:00pm, including an oyster bar, where sponsors can connect with our Waterkeepers, keynote speaker, and special guests.
We invite you to join us as a sponsor of our 4th annual In Defense of Water fundraiser. As a sponsor of In Defense of Water, you will be investing in the only organization that harnesses the grassroots power, legal expertise, and scientific know-how of our Waterkeepers to address regional threats to clean water. We are also working hard to ensure the principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) are reflected in all our work, including the planning of this event. To eliminate cost as a barrier to having more members of our community attend In Defense of Water, we are encouraging sponsors that cannot utilize some or all of their guest tickets to consider donating them to our local environmental justice partners. Our staff will help coordinate your ticket donation(s).
