Fabulous event last night. I was so proud to be there, knowing how far TTF has come in 10 years. Thank you to our dedicated and talented staff who so wonderfully fulfill our mission everyday.

We had over 175 in attendance last night..I believe that is a new record! It was great to see so many new faces, along with those that have been involved with TTF, since before we became a non-profit. My thanks to our governing and advisory board members who supported the event. 

Little did I know when I joined the board 10 years ago, that TTF would become a regional and national model for watershed organizations.

Susan Myerov, TTF Board President 

What an inspiring evening! Thank you to our honorees, sponsors, donors, Board Directors and Advisors, so many old and new friends, and VIPS: you made our 10th anniversary celebration a success. Watershed stewards from upstream and downstream networked and learned about the many ways we’re all making a difference. We had a chance to recognize our award winners and enjoy great food and drink. We even had a raffle!

TTF would especially like to thank Philadelphia Councilman Ed Neilson for attending, as well as Philadelphia Councilwomen Maria Quinones Sanchez and Blondell Reynolds Brown, State Representatives Jason Dawkins and Steve McCarter, U.S. Representative Brendan Boyle, and Cheltenham Township for having staff join us with your special regards.

Watershed Milestone 2015 Thank You: Sponsors, Donors & Partiers! — 2 Comments

  1. Hi Julie,
    About the art I lent to the cause…..I would like to donate them to your office. Mainly because your office needs them and secondly they are images from the Delaware River taken by me and produced by me, a Globe artist!
    Seriously, they would look great in your office and they have a total value of $900 if you need to write up a receipt but more importantly It is a way for me to contribute to your important work.
    Let me know what you will do.

  2. Wow, thank you! We love the art and will get you a donation letter in a couple of weeks (we have lots going on right now). We’ll also do a thank you blog so will be in touch so we can take a photo, etc. We are so honored and touched.

    Best, Julie, Doryan, and the TTF Team
