Until the party begins!

A few reasons to attend OTR



Party for a Cause

On the River is more than a summer bash – it is a tool to support the mission of the Center to break the cycle of homelessness. Please consider joining our efforts to continue to change the landscape of South Bend.



All of the Community Support

A special thanks goes out to all of the committee members who have and will put many hours into planning this great event. This event would not be possible without the support of many families, friends, acquaintances, colleagues and businesses. Please support our sponsors!



It's really, really fun!

Where else can you find a beach in South Bend? Combine thousands of people who love to have fun in the sun, throw in some social consciousness and you’ve got On the River!
