For those of you in attendance, we don’t have to tell you this, but for those that weren’t able to make it, the Water the Future event was a huge success!  Over 150 people came through the doors to help support Charleston Waterkeeper’s efforts.  When all was said and done, the event raised in excess of $1,300!  This money will be used to defend Charleston’s waterways from pollution and protect your rights to clean water.

A huge thanks to everyone who helped to make this idea a reality.  Rob Brennan of Brennan Media put this video together from the event.  A big thanks to him for rocking it out, sans assistance from any mainstream media outlet.

For photos of the event, check out our Facebook profile or Chrys Rynearson’s flickr feed.  If you’ve got photos or video from the event, we’d love to check them out!  Tag us on FB or send them to us at info@charlestonwaterkeeper.org.

We’ll have more media and follow-up to come… so stay tuned!

[UPDATE]

Our friends at TheDigitel.com threw up a great article about the Water the Future event.  Check it out here!  Also, Charlie Magazine included us in their “society” page… check it!

Also, in case you missed it, here’s Cyrus’s speech from the night (Thanks for shooting this, Amanda!)…

    Hey!

    Just wanted to say that my Dad came to the party but did not stay long…but from what he saw he really liked it.

    On another note I put in a good word for you today. I e-mailed the environmental club here at Winthrop and asked if we could have a bake sale fundraiser for you. I’ll let you know what happens! Take care!! -Cosima

  2. Awesome! So glad he was able to make it… Too bad I missed him. It was a busy night, but an incredibly successful one!

    Thanks for organizing a bake sale at Winthrop. We’re so pumped to have your support.
