Yough Defense Party

November 16, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 11:30 pm


The Best Party of the Year!

Join us on November 16, 2017 at the Falls City Pub in Ohiopyle for our 9th annual Yough Defense Party.  This event is the single largest fundraiser for our Yough Defense Fund which covers expenses associated with water quality monitoring, investigation of citizen complaints, litigation, and patrolling the watershed. Our Yough Defense Party is generously hosted by the good folks at Wilderness Voyageurs.

Your $20 contribution at the door and all draft beer sales go directly to our Yough Defense Fund.

You receive one drink token with your $20 contribution at the door as well as some great appetizers. New this year, we will be featuring Bloom Brew and Kegg Brewing Company (more TBA) to provide beers that are brewed locally and want to the support the Yough! Don’t forget about great entertainment… Fern Cliff Collective starting at 9pm.

Are you unable to make the party this year? We’ll miss you, but you can still support the party by Donating online here, to the Yough Defense Fund. We use grassroots efforts to defend against further pollution, to improve water quality and to conserve the natural ecology and character of the Laurel Highlands region. Your support makes this possible.
