Annual Dinner & Silent Auction
October 25, 2013 By Michael Rawitch
Once a year Friends of the Kaw hosts a dinner meeting with a keynote speaker. This year’s event will take place on Tuesday, November 5th in Lawrence. While our board meets bi-monthly, most of our member activities focus around Kaw River float trips with an occasional clean-up. Our annual dinner is a great opportunity for our members to meet each other, learn more about a river related topic and do some holiday shopping at our silent auction.
This year’s dinner at Tortas Jalisco Restaraunt is being prepared by Angel Alvarez, owner of Tortas Jalisco’s and winner of the Riverkeeper Award at the last River City Cookoff, and will include a delicious endless taco bar. In addition to great food we will also host our silent auction, and a keynote speaker. The auction will be filled with a number of great items that are perfect gifts for this holiday season. Our keynote speaker ill be Kristin Riott, Executive Director of the Kansas City nonprofit Bridging the Gap. She will present an overview of fresh water globally, nationally, and locally.The cost is $35 per person, and includes dinner, drink, and dessert. RSVP’s need to be made by November 1st by calling Laura Calwell at (785)312-7200, or by making a donation via our website. For more information please visit www.kansasriver.org/annual-
