Ninth Annual A River Affair Raised Over 35K

On May 27—What a great turnout we had this year at our ninth annual A River Affair! We had 140 in attendance and raised over $35,000! A River Affair was held May 27th at The Ruddy Duck Seafood & Alehouse on St. George Island. We had a warm and sunny afternoon that was enjoyed by all!

This day is so important to our operation as it is our biggest fundraiser of the year and supports our restoration efforts on the St. Mary's River. We are so grateful to those who could not attend but supported our fundraiser with their donations and services. We also extend many thanks to our attendees, auction winners, generous donors, and our hosts: Jeffrey Clark, Brian & Marie Tarleton, Diana Mendes & Mark Bassett, John & Karen Garner, Mary Barber & Curtis von Kann, Bob & Susan Paul, Julie & Larry O'Brien, Bob & Kathy Groat, Wayne Cook—Cook's Deli, Bob & Sue Taylor—Taylor Gas Co., & John Giusti & Sherry Stanley—we could have not done it without you all!

Congratulations to this year's River Champions—Dr. Chris Tanner and Allison Rugila. Chris has been integral in the design and implementation of the St. Mary's Oyster Reef Project, and has supported us for many years. Allison Rugila worked for the association during a strategic five-year period of growth and success. Make sure to join us next year for our tenth annual A River Affair! You won't want to miss it!
