Save the Date September 20, 2018. The River Inspires: An Evening Celebrating the Mississippi River

Please make plans to join us for a fun-filled and inspiring evening to celebrate and support the Big River!

New this year, the arts will be a key feature of our annual event. FMR is partnering with several local artists across several different media to showcase their river-inspired artwork.

From our lovely venue, Aria in Minneapolis’ North Loop, the evening will also feature:
• a celebration of FMR’s 25th anniversary
Jearlyn Steele as our emcee
• delectable local food and drinks
• an entertaining river-themed live auction
• an opportunity to relish the company of fellow friends of the river

Need another reason to attend? Proceeds from the event directly support our Water, River Corridor, Land Protection and Outreach & Stewardship programs. ​

Mark your calendars today! More information and tickets for purchase will be made available in the not too distant future.

Are you interested in becoming a valued sponsor of our event? If so, please contact Jeanine Holden at 651-222-2193 x22 or Your impact as a sponsor extends beyond a single night, it flows down the river corridor and through our communities.
