Easter Seals Charity Regatta
On August 9th, 2014, the annual National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta will be taking place. The event will be taking place at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and registration for boat sponsors and skippers is now open.
The regatta is an annual fundraiser, with the proceeds raised going towards operating and renovating the Easter Seals House in Vancouver. The Easter Seals House is "a home-away-from-home for children and their families when they must travel to Children’s Hospital for medical treatment."
The entry fee for the regatta is $100 and in order to partake in the event the skippers must raise a minimum amount of $250 in boat sponsorship. However, this years event comes with a bit of a twist. There is an incentive to raise even more in sponsorship, as every $500 raised will increase the chances of winning.The level of sponsorship can be $250, $500, $1,000 or $1,500, as well as partial sponsorships.
