$173,000 Raised at the 2015 National Bank Easter Seals Regatta!
Fun, Fun and Sun was experienced at the National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club on Saturday July 18th! 29 boats participated in the PHRF race with flying sails and no flying sails divisions and announced a total of $173,000 in support of Easter Seals House Vancouver. Funds raised by the event support the day-to-day operations of this home-away-from-home for families to stay when their children require medical attention in Vancouver.
“We are truly grateful for the continued support of our title sponsor National Bank,” said, Easter Seals President and CEO Stephen Miller. “We are thankful to Royal Vancouver Yacht Club for hosting this great event for the 24th year, and we are appreciative of all the boat sponsors, skippers as well as the donors, suppliers, and many volunteers who participated. The National Bank Easter Seals Charity Regatta would not be possible without their dedication to such an important cause.”
The Easter Seals Cup was awarded to Flying Sails winner Honey Badger, skippered by Isla Shannon and No Flying Sails winner Rant, skippered by Tyrone Stelzenmuller. The cup was also awarded to top fundraiser Rick Reynolds, who raised $6,750 in boat sponsorships.
