Westover Lawn Party

The 30th Anniversary Westover Lawn Party has been postponed.

It is with a heavy heart that we share that we have decided to cancel plans for a Westover Lawn Party this summer. We remain optimistic about the future. However, the uncertainty around health and safety, as well as the possibility of continued gathering restrictions, makes planning difficult. As the situation evolves, and hopefully resolves, we will continue to consider ways we can gather to celebrate and support our work for the James River. We will share updates as they come.

We are incredibly grateful to our Westover Planning Committee, past sponsors, and attendees of our twenty-nine successful Westover Lawn Parties. We are proud of the work that this event has made possible for the James River, and we are hopeful for a future where we can continue to engage our river community in protecting and improving the health of the James for generations to come.

We hope you and your families continue to stay healthy and well and that you are finding ways to connect with the beauty and solace that the James has to offer during these times.

Help JRA close our revenue gap!

Help JRA close our revenue gap of $138,310 due to the cancellation of this very successful annual event that attracts over 500 guests. Whether you attended by purchasing a $100 ticket, sponsored a table for $1,000, won a live or silent auction, or your company was a sponsor, please consider a donation at that same level so we are able to continue our work to protect our precious natural resource and connect our communities to it. For more information, or with any questions, reach out to Kristen Armstrong, karmstrong@thejamesriver.org | 804.215.6138
