Join us on Wednesday, September 27, at the Georgia Aquarium, to recognize and honor the individuals, institutions, and businesses that have made a significant contribution to CRK’s mission of protecting the Chattahoochee River, its tributaries, lakes and watershed.
In 2016, 450 guests gathered at The Foundry at Puritan Mill to celebrate Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s accomplishments under the leadership of Executive Director Juliet Cohen and Riverkeeper Jason Ulseth and to honor Ambassador Andrew Young with the River Leader Award. Thanks to our sponsors and a fantastic selection of auction items, we raised more than $260,000 to support our river protection programs.
In 2017, we will honor John Pruitt with the River Guardian Award and Stephanie Stuckey with the River Steward Award. Special guest, Dr. Marshall Shepherd, Georgia Athletic Association Distinguished Professor and Director, UGA Atmospheric Sciences Program, will deliver a timely address on climate and the Chattahoochee watershed.
Past Sponsors have included: Cox Enterprises, Jim and Sarah Kennedy, PNC Bank, UPS, The Coca-Cola Company, Mary Jane and Dave Kirkpatrick, Turner Foundation, Arthur Blank Family Foundation, Ellis Communications, The Hertz Family, Laura and Rutherford Seydel, Turner Enterprises and more.
