More than 400 guests attended the event in the Sensory Garden at Idlewild Park. All of the proceeds from the event will support our efforts to create a cleaner, more beautiful region through programs like the Truckee River Cleanup Day, Christmas Tree Recycling, Adopt-A-Spot and environmental education for children and adults.

Raise the River was designed with a special focus on the food, drink, music and great people our community has to offer; from local food by chef Mark Estee, drinks by Great Basin Brewing Company, Brewer’s Cabinet, Tahoe Blue VodkaSeven Trough Distilling, and Davidson Organic Teas to entertainment by local band The Sextones.

A huge THANK YOU to our Featured Sponsors — Dolan Auto Group and Wells Fargo — our Sense Sponsors — Nevada Mining Association, Spin Games, Granite Construction, NV Energy, and Moana Nursery — as well as the many other companies that donated food, drink and auction prizes, and to the community members who attended the event on a beautiful summer evening.

“KTMB is a nonprofit organization. We clean more than 200,000 pounds of trash each year, plant flowers, pull weeds and educate our community about how to keep our community clean, healthy and beautiful on donations from companies and citizens in the area. Our Raise the River event was a celebration of the places and people that make the Truckee Meadows a wonderful place to live,” said Christi Cakiroglu, KTMB Executive Director. “It is businesses like Wells Fargo, Dolan Auto Group and others who make this area great by investing in a clean and beautiful community.”

“We enjoy creating and sustaining community partnerships that enrich the quality of life for Northern Nevadans. We look forward to being a part of this continued movement and helping make Reno an even better place to live,” said Ashton Sunseri of Dolan Auto Group.
