Pres. Bill Clinton Honored at Riverkeeper Festival

President Bill Clinton was honored at last night’s Annual Fisherman Ball hosted by the Riverkeeper Organization in New York. Riverkeeper advocates for clean water in the Hudson River that supplies New York City with clean drinking water.

President Clinton wasn’t the only notable attendee at the Annual Fisherman Ball. The Clinton Climate Initiative has worked to combat the adverse effects of global climate change with policy for sustainable solutions and economic development.

Honoree guests included Sting and Trudie Styler. Both Sting and Trudie Styler worked on spearheading the Rainforest Foundation in 1989. The Rainforest Foundation protects water and land of indigenous groups living in the rainforest.

Honorary guests at the Riverkeeper’s Annual Fisherman Ball were given the “Big Fish” award for their work on clean water advocacy across the world.

New Yorkers are proud of drinking water quality available straight from the tap. The work of the Riverkeeper Organization and distinguished individuals including President Bill Clinton will preserve the pristine water sources that keep New Yorkers refreshed.
