The RAINE Charity Committee is excited to announce the start of the 2019 “Sailing for the Bayshore” fundraising campaign to benefit the RAINE (Reaching All In Need Everyday) Foundation. RAINE is a local 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides food, clothing and assistance during the holidays, along with other various necessities for families in crisis throughout the Bayshore communities.
The “Sailing for the Bayshore” fundraising campaign leads up to the annual Bill Volk Regatta, a two-day sailboat race and charity event held at the Keyport Yacht Club, June 7-9, 2019. The Regatta weekend is a major club event where all members come together to celebrate the sport of sailing and giving back to our community. This year, we are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Annual Bill Volk Regatta. The first regatta held in 1994 was dedicated to the memory of Bill Volk, an energetic club member who - among many things - helped revitalize the club's lapsed racing program. Twenty-five years later, the Bill Volk Charity Regatta is still going strong, as is our exciting racing program and KYC's commitment to benefit our community.
KYC Members, Skippers and Crew can start fundraising now through our FlipCause site and compete for the 1st Place Fundraiser award, the RAINE CUP Trophy, to be awarded at the Bill Volk Regatta party, June 8.
Plus, raise $500 by May 10 and you can get your Team name or your boat name on the back of the Bill Volk Regatta T-shirt!
You don’t need to own a boat or race in the regatta to help fundraise!
