The 2012 Western Carolina Sailing Club Hospice Regatta is scheduled for October 12th-14th and I wanted to send out some information on how you can participate in this great event. I became involved in helping run this event 5 years ago with the mindset of giving back after recent experiences with Hospice. It's been a fun journey with my Co-Chair Ronnie Ashmore. We have worked hard and have surpassed our goal every year. This year our goal is $50,000.
This year, I wanted to throw out a special challenge to you. I am putting up a bottle of Liquor or $50 donation to anyone that beats me at the Hospice Regatta. That's right. You beat me, I provide a bottle of your favorite hooch (or in the case that Jeff Linton shows up, gets lucky and beats me, Busch beer) or a $50 donation to the Hospice in your name. Keep in mind I have Dennis Baker (aka 'Lightning Guy') crewing for me that weekend, so your chances are slim.
If you can't make it, but still want to help me out, we have Sailing for others challenge where you can donate in my name. I would sincerely appreciate your support by helping me raise money for the Hospice.
I look forward to seeing everyone next month.
