2016 Charles L. Branch M.D. Leukemia Cup Regatta - July 2 & 3
Lake Canyon Yacht Club
Fundraising efforts for 2016 are now underway. Money raised from this event will be used to fund life-saving blood cancer research and services for local patients. In addition to the regatta and traditional July Barbecue, a Silent Auction and live music will also be part of the festivities. Fundraising teams can be affiliated with a specific boat, fleet or group of individuals. We are also seeking business sponsorships. All donations go directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
This two day regatta will consist of a one day long distance race and a second day devoted to traditional buoys racing. Trophies will be awarded by class for racing, with another set of trophies for those teams that raise the most money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Racers are encouraged to create Fundraising Teams (see details below.) Contact either Ray Leubner with questions regarding the race format.
