Don't miss the river party of 2014! 

The California River Awards
Friday, October 24th 6-9 pm
At The City Club of San Francisco
155 Sansome Street, San Francisco, CA 

Friends of the River's California River Awards is a gala event to honor outstanding contributors to river conservation, preservation, and protection. This festive and unforgettable evening celebrating California's most dedicated river heroes is FOR's biggest party and fundraiser of the year. All monies raised support FOR's work to protect, restore, and sustain rivers—especially to effectively campaign against today’s greatest threat to California Rivers—the massive $25 billion Water Tunnels proposed to bypass the Delta.

Along with delectable food, terrific wine, and an exciting live auction, the evening presents a wonderful opportunity to support FOR's ongoing efforts to protect rivers while socializing with old and new friends.
This year's event will feature
  • A delicious sit down dinner served to your table.
  • Fine wines and other beverages
  • A live auction chocked full of "once in a lifetime experiences big and small" as well as a silent auction to tempt attendees with outdoor adventures, fine wines and dining, art, camping equipment, and more. 
  • An opportunity to support our campaigns.

About the Mark Dubois Award :   
More than forty years ago, the actions of a small group of courageous people fighting to save the river they loved set in motion the end of dam building in North America and the birth of countless river protection and watershed groups keeping the magic of their own rivers alive. The campaign to Save the Stanislaus River built Friends of the River into an institution that has gone on to protect and preserve thousands of river miles in California.
Mark Dubois was the leader and the heart and soul of that historic campaign. This year marks the 35th anniversary of Mark chaining himself to a rock in the river canyon to force the US Army Corp of Engineers to stop the water from rising behind the New Melones Dam or drown him. This award is given to extraordinary people whose efforts recall the can-do spirit that Mark Dubois, Founder and Director Emeritus of Friends of the River, infused into our organization.
