From the TBHA’s Harbor News Update:
The Boston Harbor Association (TBHA) will host its 17th annual Boston Harbor Celebration and Harbor Auction on Tuesday 13 April 2010 from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm in the beautiful Wharf Room at the Boston Harbor Hotel, Rowes Wharf, Boston. Join in an annual tradition for waterfront businesses, community leaders, environmentalists, and public officials, which includes dinner donated by Legal Sea Foods and a silent and live auction featuring many one-of-a-kind items including harbor excursions, weekend getaways, entertainment and sports events.
Proceeds from the event will support TBHA’s advocacy efforts to increase public amenities along Boston’s HarborWalk, and the development of a sustainable, Green Working Port. TBHA has successfully worked to activate the waterfront, with new HarborWalk segments opening for the general public to enjoy along the North End, Downtown, and South Boston waterfronts this past year. TBHA has also been a leader in advocating for sustainable development of the waterfront, in promoting a comprehensive, affordable water transportation system in Boston Harbor, and in helping to ensure amenities at Boston Harbor beaches and islands.
