A huge thank you to everyone who attended our second annual River Trivia and T. rex race event at the Copper Club! The evening brought together river lovers and community members to celebrate our work, our community, and our rivers.
 
Over the course of the evening, we raised over $3,670 for river restoration! 
 
Congratulations to our Ducky Scramble winners: Ann Hanson, Lindsay Murdoch, and Terry Kidd!
 
A big thank you to everyone who joined us, to our incredible friends and supporters at The Copper Club Brewing Company for hosting us, and to the following businesses for donating raffle and trivia prizes: GROWL Agency, The Gear Junction, Palisade Wine Country Inn, Rimrock Adventures, REI, The Hot Tomato, and Peach Street Distillery. 
 
If you weren't able to attend, we missed you! Be sure to watch the footage of our annual T-Rex Race for a good laugh.

In case you're wondering what a T. Rex race is... here is a clip from last year's race, including a heated finish.
This year will include some new faces (or animals) to our lineup; Copper Club staff will be joining us at the starting line! Donning their chicken costumes (typically reserved for Mike the Headless Chicken Festival), we'll see if Copper Club can keep up with RiversEdge West as they go head to head in an obstacle course on Mulberry Street.
