Bohanan’s Partners with River Foundation to Broaden Local River Awareness
Jul 11, 2012
While Bohanan’s is known for its legendary steaks, seafood and craft cocktail creations, this Houston Street spot and its Executive Chef and Owner Mark Bohanan aren’t only about delicious dining and tasty drinks. In fact, Bohanan’s has partnered with the San Antonio River Foundation to bring the focus to the river.
Throughout the next six months, Bohanan’s will sponsor a series of luncheons aimed at spreading the story of the River Foundation, the only non-profit working to enhance the natural beauty, recreational use and public appreciation of the entire San Antonio River. Luncheon hosts include Mary Rose Brown with NuStar and Mike Burke, President and CEO of EOTT Energy Corp, among others.
Having previously partnered with the River Foundation on its Got Medal? event in April, Chef Mark Bohanan sees the value that the River Foundation provides to San Antonio.
“The San Antonio River is an essential element of our culture and community,” said Chef Mark Bohanan. “The goal of these luncheons is to provide an avenue for the River Foundation to increase awareness of its important mission, thus allowing the organization to continue its good work for years to come.”
During the luncheons, guests will have the chance to learn firsthand about the ambitious projects the River Foundation is undertaking. From installing exciting urban art pieces by renowned artists to creating unprecedented opportunities for education, recreation, reflection and interaction with nature along the entire river, the San Antonio River Foundation is working to make the San Antonio River a vibrant, active, cultural and recreational corridor that plays an integral role in the lives of the communities through which it runs.
In addition, the San Antonio River Foundation depends solely on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations. Such investments yield outstanding returns, both tangible and immeasurable, to include the preservation and enhancement of a natural San Antonio treasure.
