North Fork of the White Fundraiser

 

OUR friends on the North Fork of the White River in Missouri were devastated by last month’s flood but the fight back is under way.

The North Fork of the White, if you aren’t familiar, starts in southern missouri, and runs south to be the major tributary of Norfork Lake and the Norfork Tailwater.

Our friend, guide and videographer Brian Wise shows the devastation in the video above, his fourth VLog, but also the volunteer clean up effort last weekend. If you are familiar with this gorgeous river, the flood impact is almost unbelievable.

The Riverstrong Fund has also been established with a goal of raising $50,000 to enhance the wild trout population of the river. The RiverStrong fund will be governed by a small advisory committee of outfitters and fisheries biologists to determine how the money can make an immediate and positive impact. All funds raised will be used exclusively for The North Fork of The White River.

Riverstrong will hold at fundraiser at the at 6:30pm on June 15th at Schlafly Tap Room in St Louis. A $25 minimum donation at the door covers you for beer, food, and live music all night long. We will also be holding a silent auction and 50/50 raffle. You can see a list of the live auction items below.

Excepting items for the auction up until the event. Please contact Stephanie Holtgreven if you’d like to make a donation to the silent auction.
