Club Web Site: http://www.wcsc-sailing.org


The 2013 Hospice Regatta is scheduled for October 18th -20th and registration is now open.  The NOR and all regatta information can be found by going to the WCSC website at www.wcsc-sailing.org or directly to the 2013 Hospice Information page at 2013 Hospice Information.  Checkout our Hospice Regatta merchandise.  We have men’s and women’s fleece vests in multiple colors.  We also have all kinds of cool shirts (including the sweat shirts and wicking shirts), hats, visors, and knit caps available for purchase. Please order online early; this stuff will go fast once the regatta starts.

We have a goal of raising $60,000 this year (that's correct, SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!) for Hospice of the Upstate. We find it hard to believe that our Regatta has quickly grown from raising $20k-$30k a year to having a target of $60k.  With your help and support, we have raised over $350k the last 13 years. Help us achieve our 2013 goal either thru racing, donations, cruising, or volunteering your time.

If you don't know much about the Hospice of the Upstate, check it out online at www.Hospicehouse.net.  They have a fabulous facility with 27 patient rooms dedicated towards quality end of life care. As your Co-Chairs, this is a charity that we feel especially attached to as we both have recent Hospice experience within our families.

So you may ask how you can help us have a successful event? We have numerous options below and you can pick more than one.

Corporate Sponsorship

Many of us work for large companies who typically have some kind of matching gift program or in some cases would be willing to directly support our event. We would like you to investigate what options are available at your Company. Many of you may have already done this. If you have not had a chance, please contact your HR department or the person in your company that would direct you to the correct person that can help. Sometimes, all it takes is to ask the question. You might get the budget answer…meaning it may not be in the budget this year. But ask what can be done to get it in the budget for 2014? Please do some leg work for us and try to be our recruiter at your company. If you have any questions or if you need help in working with your employer, contact John Kreidler or Ronnie Ashmore. We would love to lend a hand.

We have setup a link on the WCSC website at www.wcsc-sailing.org. Follow the 2013 Hospice link on the left. It will direct you to a page that includes the Sponsorship packages, information on the event and contact information for John or Ronnie. We will be adding more information to the page as it comes available.

Attend the event!

For those that have attended in the past, you know that almost all of the expenses for this event are covered by donations from individuals or local companies.  This includes the food, door prizes, promotion, beverages, ice, etc. and is accomplished by WCSC Club members and the strong efforts/network of Hospice of the Upstate.  What that means is that in addition to any contributions/donations you choose to make, most of the fees for the event actually end up going to support Hospice of the Upstate.  Plan to attend and invite your friends and fellow competitors. Help us by posting this information on your local club bulletin board and website.

Sailing for Others

We will again be holding this special sponsorship challenge to help raise additional funds. If you are planning on being a skipper, we will be running the Sailing for Others sponsorship program. Start lining up family and friends to help sponsor you in this special challenge. Remember that it can all be done online. The top ‘Sailing for Others’ skippers will be recognized on Sunday during the awards ceremony.

Cruising the Hospice

This year we will be repeating the "Cruising the Hospice” event and we hope it continues to grow as we had over 10 boats last year sail in this non-competitive event. We found it appealed to many of our members who have boats and don’t want to do the racing thing. It’s an opportunity to get out on the water and sail a fun event, not a race. Bob Knapp is helping us this year and will come up with something cool and non-competitive. You will get a chance to sail, show your friends a good time/party and help support our event.

 

 

With your help, we look forward to reaching our goal this year.
