Local Clean Water Champions Raise More Than $50,000 for the Potomac


Nearly 200 guests packed the House of Sweden in Georgetown last month to celebrate the Potomac River and clean water successes at Potomac Conservancy's first annual Take Me to the River event. Together, guests and sponsors raised more than $50,000 to drive clean water initiatives in local communities across the Potomac region.  

"It’s going to take me, you, and our community coming together to create meaningful change for a healthy and restored Potomac," Potomac Conservancy President Hedrick Belin said. "That’s why everything your Potomac Conservancy does — whether it’s land protection, grassroots advocacy, or hands-on restoration — everything involves people taking an action."

The actions of more than 10,000 donors, grassroots advocates, and volunteers combine to create lasting impacts on our Nation's River. And it all begins when one person takes an action to safeguard our most valuable resource: water.

Potomac Conservancy would like to offer a special thank you to the sponsors of the event!
