On November 3rd, 2017, over 250 friends, guests and supporters gathered at the historic Old Ebbitt Grill to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Clean Water Act and all those who have played a part in its enduring success. This year, we had the privilege of honoring three of the first implementers of the Clean Water Act – Bruce Diamond, Ridge Hall and Susan Lepow. The evening also included a delicious watershed dinner and live tunes from King Soul band!

We were blown away by the commitment of so many – especially our gala sponsors, host committee and board. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we raised a record $220,000! We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Sally Davidson and Clyde’s Restaurant group for their unwavering support and generosity. We could not have done this without you all!

Thank You 2017 Law & Water Sponsors!
