On July 18th, 2015, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club proudly hosts the National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta, the primary fundraiser for Easter Seals House Vancouver, a home away from home for out-of-town families to stay with their children receive much needed medical care.
A number of boats have already registered for this year’s Easter Seals Cup race, with regatta organizers still counting on a few more boats to register. The National Bank Easter Seals Regatta is the largest charity regatta on the West Coast and a great opportunity for boat owners to enjoy a fun day on the water while supporting a good cause. The Regatta is a PHRF handicap race with flying sails and no-flying sails divisions. The Regatta is pirate-themed and will include a parade through False Creek. Prizes will be awarded for ‘best crew spirit’ and ‘best costume.’
Not a sailor, not a problem. Join the Regatta’s growing list of organizations, businesses and individuals who have registered to sponsor a boat or skipper. Boat sponsorship, starting at $250, is a great way to raise your corporate profile within the community, recognize employees or invite out clientele, receive a charitable tax receipt, all while giving back to a worthwhile cause.
Everyone is invited to attend the “Festival in the Park” BBQ in Hastings Mill Park. It will offer a chance for everyone to kick back and relax after a fun day of racing. There will be a barbeque, beer garden, live band and a fabulous silent auction. Bring the kids; there are activities for them too. Tickets for the BBQ and event information
are available at 604-808-8517 or www.eastersealsregatta.ca.
