The 18th Annual Great River Gathering: Celebrating Saint Paul on the Mississippi

Saint Paul’s Annual Town Dinner

Presented by:

The Saint Paul Foundation

Thanks to all those who attended the 18th Annual Great River Gathering on Thursday, May 10, 2012, at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. Together we celebrate the progress that has been made in Saint Paul over the past year, and we look toward the future, guided by the inspiring words of the event’s Keynote Speaker, Charles Landry.

An additional “Thank you!” to the sponsors that made this event possible, and to the 50+ local organizations who participated in the RiverWork Exhibit, showing us the tapestry of activities that are changing the face of our city.

We look forward to seeing you again next year!

About the Event

Each year, our community’s best and brightest come together for the annual Great River Gathering. Policy makers, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, elected officials, philanthropists, artists and citizens from all walks of life gather to celebrate the ecological, economic and historic significance of the Mississippi River. The Pioneer Press editorial page has called the event a “party with a purpose.” In fact, no other event brings together such an influential and diverse group of civic leaders and community members – all deeply committed to the ongoing renaissance of Saint Paul and the Mississippi River valley.

Thanks to the 2012 Sponsors
