Become a Chefs for Clearwater sponsor

Chefs for Clearwater 2019 will bring together 300 Hudson Valley luminaries, culinary aficionados, community leaders and Clearwater donors to celebrate the bounty of the Hudson Valley, in support of a popular cause that’s close to home: Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

2019 is a special year for Clearwater — the 50th anniversary of the sloop’s maiden voyage and the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger’s birth.  The organization’s mission from the beginning has been to build grassroots support for protecting our watershed, with education programs that have reached more than half a million people since 1969. You are cordially invited to help us continue and expand our work as a valued sponsor of this one-of-a-kind occasion. As a Chefs sponsor, you will be recognized by name or logo in communications for one or all three upcoming Clearwater events: Chefs for Clearwater in October, the Spirit of the Hudson Gala in February, 2020, and the Great Hudson River Revival the following summer.

Together, these unique events are expected to attract an affluent, engaged audience totaling more than 10,000 people from New York City and Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties.

We hope you can join us in helping to keep Pete Seeger’s legacy of environmental advocacy alive and well in the Hudson Valley.
