Join us for the 2014 Golden Oars Awards Dinner on 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.

We are grateful for the support of our Golden Oars dinner sponsors: One Equity Partners, The Jordan Company, John Chatzky. Goldman Sachs, Bruce Beal, Ludus Tours, Hospital for Special Surgery and Michael J. Brown. Thank you to Row2k Media for sponsoring the Fan's Choice Awards.
