Supporting Friends of the Chicago River

focr-logo-d5cb6fc9ba6d1190ff2c8565a33908e0We are proud supporters of Friends of the Chicago River and commend their efforts to clean up and protect our river. For the past two seasons, this has been our company cause and we are excited to have donated more than $13,000 to the organization since 2015.

Partnering with Friends of the Chicago River was a natural one for Chicago Electric Boat Company. “Garbage in the river is a big problem and one that we, as a company who operates here, felt we had to do something about,” reports Caroline, our Vice President. “By supporting Friends of the Chicago River through an annual donation, as well as volunteering in clean ups, we are helping the river live up to its true potential.”

DSCF7338One way we show support for Friends of the Chicago River and their clean up efforts is with Mighty Marie, one of our 22 foot boats. This past winter, we worked with the organization to rebrand Mighty Marie with a special Friends of the Chicago River wrap so that she can raise awareness as she cruises through the city. 10% of Marie’s annual rental sales is donated to Friends of the Chicago River, so grab some friends, take her for a spin and show your support of this great organization.

April 22nd is Earth Day but we are celebrating all month long! Save 30% on rentals on all of our boats from April 15-May 15 using code EARTHLOVE30. Reserve your boat now!*
