Heads and Tails Game
River Night guests played our heads and tails game for a
chance to win tickets to a Red Sox game at Fenway.

Over 100 people gathered at Spinelli's in Lynnfield on May 16th for the Saugus River Watershed Council's annual River Night benefit auction and dinner. Following a delicious dinner, guests mingled with friends and listened to live jazz music while browsing the live and silent auction tables.


Thanks to tremendous support from River Night sponsors, auction item donors, and guests, over $15,000 was raised to support our environmental education and river restoration programs.


The Saugus River Watershed Council extends its sincere appreciation to the following businesses, organizations, and individuals for their generous contributions.  Find out more about these great businesses and organizations by following the online links to their websites provided here!
