Ribbon of Blue Ribbon of Green Gala

A Night to Remember!

Thank you to the more than 300 attendees, many generous sponsors, and helpful volunteers for making our June 2nd, 2018 gala celebrating the retirement of Renata von Tscharner such a success! With your help, we raised over $800,000 for the future of the Charles River Conservancy. We are filled with gratitude and excited to chart our next chapter.
