9th Annual NYC Awards Ceremony & Auction

September 17, 2020 - 7:00pm

Bonefish & Tarpon Trust cordially invites you to attend the 9th Annual NYC Awards Ceremony and Auction!

This very special program will take place as a VIRTUAL presentation on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at 7 pm ET.  This event will be unlike any you have seen thus far as BTT honors Tom Brokaw with the Lefty Kreh Award for Lifetime Achievement in Conservation. Tom will be joined in the spotlight by several cast members from Buccaneers & Bones, who will receive the Curt Gowdy Memorial Media Award—Michael Keaton, Huey Lewis, Yvon Chouinard, Tom McGuane and Bill Klyn. The program will also feature an update on BTT’s accomplishments and current priorities, the grand finale of an online auction, and musical entertainment by special guests.

We hope you will hold the date and make plans to join us from the safety and comfort of your own home or office. Additionally, we hope you will do so as a generous sponsor of the event, which will enable critical science and conservation initiatives to move forward. The urgency of these needs cannot be overstated at this critical time.
