Thank You.

We can’t say enough how wonderful it is to celebrate clean water with such an amazing group of people every year. You helped make our event incredibly successful, and your enthusiasm and support keeps us going throughout the year.

Together we raised an all-time high of over $191,000.

This is an incredible accomplishment and will make a huge impact! Every dollar supports our work to protect and preserve Puget Sound.

Congratulations again to the Puget Soundkeeper 2015 Inspiration Award winner Brian Cladoosby.

We were truly honored to have Swinomish Tribal Community Chairman Brian Cladoosby at this year’s Salute to the Sound to accept his award. He gave an incredible speech and blew us away later in the program when he and the Swinomish Tribal Community committed $10,000 in the paddle raise to support Soundkeeper’s work.

Salute to the Sound also featured the premiere of a short film: Sound in the Balance, courtesy of Trifilm.


If you weren’t able to attend, remember that you still have an opportunity to give through our virtual paddle raise, which runs through October 31. All donations over $350 earn an invitation to our special party at Pike Brewing in December!
Thank you. Together we can protect and preserve Puget Sound.
