How many of you live in the greater Fredericksburg, VA area and have enjoyed the natural tranquility of the Rappahannock River on occasion? Probably most of you in one way or another, whether it be fishing, canoeing, swimming, tubing, or just relaxing on the banks on a lazy afternoon. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if the Rappahannock River became so polluted that it became unusable? If so, join me and my voice in supporting the Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) in preserving the health and picturesque nature of the Rappahannock River. One way that I enjoy to support the Friends of the Rappahannock’s efforts while enjoying a fun night out with good company, is through sponsoring the annual Riverfest. Riverfest “is the annual fundraiser for FOR’s advocacy, restoration and education programs” and is a wonderful way to give back to your community.

If you’ve never been to Riverfest, you are missing a blast of an evening with really good people; but most of all you are NOT assisting the efforts of saving the scenic Rappahannock in your own backyards. This year Riverfest will be held Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 4pm-8pm at Fraley Vale Farm, overlooking the breathtaking Rappahannock in King George, VA. Come enjoy a cold one and crack a crab or two while listening to live entertainment alongside the Rappahannock. For the non-crab eaters, if there are any in Fredericksburg, there will also be ribs, chicken, and veggies for the liking. There will even be a silent auction with an array of items that you could end up walking home with. Sponsorships are still available and start at $250 for 2 tickets, which includes name recognition in the advertising at Riverfest. Individual tickets start at $100. Tickets are still available for Riverfest, but are ONLY sold in advance, so the time to get your tickets is now! Additional sponsorship packages and ticket information can be found out www.riverfriends.org Come on out September 19th and join me in supporting this noteworthy cause. I’ll see ya there!
