All BSC Members,
As most of you know, BSC is the “home” for the Leukemia Cup Regatta. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the LCR, which has expanded from its start at BSC to nearly 50 Leukemia Cup events throughout the United States and Canada that have raised over $65 million toward finding a cure.
2017 was a banner year for our club – members generously raised and contributed over $43,000 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Much of this was through the Saturday Night Auction, but there were others who provided significant support through on-line fundraising, direct donations, and sponsorship of the meals and refreshments. We will need the help and support of every BSC member to match this success in 2018. Please start thinking of items you could contribute to the auction and any other support you can provide.
The staff from the Birmingham Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) will be at BSC the afternoon of the August 4 One Day Regatta with more information and to assist with registration.
Registration is now open at 2018 BSC Leukemia Cup Regatta Registration. The NOR is available at the registration link.
Thank you all for your past support. Let’s make 2018 another great year for the LCR and LLS!!!
Please feel free to pass this email and NOR on to others you know that would be interested in sailing in this event or attending the Saturday night party and auction.
More details on the regatta and fundraising to follow in the coming weeks.
