Here’s what happened in 2018

24th Annual Patron Dinner 

In 2018, 500 guests gathered at the Georgia Aquarium to celebrate CRK’s accomplishments. We honored Van Michael Salon with our prestigious River Guardian Award for their commitment to sharing the CRK message of clean water protection with their clientele and fundraising efforts over nearly a decade. We honored Agnes Scott College with our River Sustainability Award for demonstrating exceptional commitment to protecting the Chattahoochee River. The college has implemented a water plan to reduce its footprint on the river, focusing on efficiency and conservation. We were also pleased to honor Bonnie Jackson, a member of the CRK family, with our River Steward Award. For three decades, Bonnie devoted herself to protecting Georgia’s natural resources by serving the organizations that are dedicated to defending and preserving its special places.
