RIVERS -- People who support a fishable and swimmable Spokane River can toast the cause at the 10th annual Dirty Martinis for Clean Water on Friday, Nov. 4, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Hamilton Studio 1427 W. Dean Ave. in Spokane.
The event benefits the Center for Justice and Spokane Riverkeeper.
The evening will feature live entertainment from Madeline McNeill -- a fabulous singer worth the price of admission alone -- an assortment of martinis, beer, and wine, a wide array of hors d’oeuvres, the presentation of the Mike Chappell River Hero award, raffles and prizes.

- Education: River ecology, youth camps, law students, environmental students, general public, river users, official stances influencing legislation, public talks and presentations.
- Litigation: when necessary to protect our river.
- Collaboration: New opportunity for businesses to become a River Partner, working with universities, other non profits, businesses, foundations and individuals.
- Trash clean up.
