April is almost here, which means we are just about 2 months away from our opening sailing regatta of the 2017 Downtown Sailing Series. The Leukemia Cup Regatta is our annual opening race that helps raise money and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Leukemia Cup RegattaSM is a thrilling series of sailing events that combines the joy of boating with the important task of raising money to cure cancer. Since its inception, the Leukemia Cup Regatta has raised millions of dollars for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families.
At events held at yacht clubs across North America, skippers register their boats and recruit friends and colleagues to help crew and to raise funds. Crew members seek donations from friends, family, co-workers and employers to sponsor their boat. National and local event sponsors also support the Leukemia Cup Regatta.
The Skipper’s Meeting for this year’s Regatta will be held on April 6th here at Elliott Bay Marina, more specifically in the Alani Room starting at 6:30pm. The event will be catered by Palisade Restaurant. If you are interested in attending the event please RSVP with Sarah Morningstar @ (206)957-4576 or sarah@firstname.lastname@example.org.
