Our 12th Annual Harbor Hospice Regatta race raising funds and awareness for the Harbor Hospice Foundation was held on Wednesday evening, August 7. This regular race evening supported the grief support programs of The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice.
Our next exciting event at the Muskegon Yacht Club is Buoys, Boats and Brews on Saturday, September 28 featuring the lively music of Vertigo plus great deals on auction items, tasty food, and a variety of wines and craft beer sampling! Funds raised will also support our healing grief programs. Early-bird tickets are available online.
The philanthropic day brought in over $14,000 with all proceeds benefiting the life-changing grief healing programs of The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice.
The twelve annual race was held at the Muskegon Yacht Club. Race registration and Judy Miller Memorial Challenge (Skipper-to-Skipper fundraising) began at 6:30 pm with sailing fans gathered along the shores of Muskegon Lake for the evening. This hugely popular race is part of the National Hospice Regatta Alliance (hospiceregattas.org) that has raised more than $25 million dollars for hospice services across the country. West Michigan sailors love this race, and including this year, our sailors and the community have raised over $386,000 to support local hospice care.
