3 Reasons to Attend the Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta
1. The Cause
The Leukemia Cup Regattas take place at yacht clubs all over North America, and they have raised over 66 million dollars since the first one in 1988. The funds all go toward research efforts as well as initiatives to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. If you want to support their cause, you can register your boat for the event and start a fundraising campaign. Or, feel free to join a crew, volunteer, or make a donation of your own!
2. The Thrills
The Southern Chesapeake Leukemia Cup Regatta is also an opportunity to have an incredible time along the shimmering water of the Piankatank River. It doesn’t matter if you’re part of a sailing crew or watching all the action from a spectator boat. The experience is the same — pure excitement!
3. The Celebrations
Don’t forget to purchase your tickets for the social events on shore in Deltaville as well! You can join the fun at Joe Davenport’s BBQ on July 12 as well as Party for a Cure on July 13 at the Deltaville Maritime Museum. If you register a boat for the regatta, you receive a complimentary ticket to Party for a Cure. Otherwise, you’re welcome to buy a dinner ticket for $35 or a social ticket for $10.
