Golden Oars Awards Dinner

Save the Date!

The 2014 Golden Oars Awards Dinner will take place Thursday, November 20, 2014, at the New York Athletic Club in New York City!

Co-hosted by USRowing and the National Rowing Foundation, the Golden Oars Awards Dinner is in its fourth year of recognizing excellence in rowing. Golden Oars is the one time each year when the rowing community gathers to honor its own. Proceeds from the dinner help support USRowing’s national teams and America Rows, an organization changing the lives of urban youth and those with disabilities by providing rowing as an opportunity for all.

Highlighting the event will be the presentation of seven of USRowing’s longstanding awards, recognizing members of the rowing community for their service and commitment to the sport including the USRowing Medal, Jack Kelly Award, Jack Franklin Award, and USRowing Male and Female Athletes of the Year. 

USRowing also will present the Anita DeFrantz Award, honoring leaders in diversity and inclusion, and the Isabel Bohn Award, recognizing achievement in adaptive rowing.

Seven Fan’s Choice awards – honoring excellence in rowers/coxswains/coaches in the junior, collegiate, masters and national team categories – will also be presented that evening.

A special thank you to our sponsors (as of 8/14): One Equity Partners, The Jordan Company, John A. Chatzky and Michael J. Brown.
