Community and yacht club members looking to sponsor a race division in the annual Judy Miller Memorial Challenge can make an online donation until July 29 through the same website.

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.
