Juneteenth Jubilee Video Series: Watch Episode 2

The Silver Anchor Awards Reception is an annual fundraising event hosted by the Friends of the Waterfront. Each year, our Board of Directors selects award recipients in recognition for their outstanding support of the park.

Proceeds from the event benefit Waterfront Park programs such as WFPK Waterfront Wednesdays, the Clean Team, Waterfront park maintenance, the lighting of the Big Four Bridge, Fourth of July at Waterfront Park, and Catfish Louie community appearances.
