Community Welcome at Harbor Hospice Regatta Event to take place on Saturday, June 27th Muskegon Yacht Club
Families throughout the western Michigan lakeshore communities are invited to attend the annual Harbor Hospice Regatta. Not only will guests be able to enjoy a beautiful view of sailboats on the lake, but they are also invited to participate in the family-oriented picnic as well as an exciting silent auction. The event, which first began in 2008, will take place on Saturday, June 27th, at the Muskegon Yacht Club.
“The Harbor Hospice Regatta is a wonderful, fun-filled event for families to enjoy,” said Ammy Johnson, Harbor Hospice Director of Development. “The proceeds from this event help to ensure that all Harbor Hospice patients facing a life-limiting illness have access to expert care as well as support for their families regardless of their ability to pay.”
The Race begins with the starting gun at 1 p.m. The Muskegon Yacht Club hosts a Picnic Dinner, which is open to the public, from Noon-5:30 p.m. tickets are $12.50 for adults and $6 for a more traditional menu for kids 12 and under. Tickets may be purchased at Harbor Hospice, Muskegon Yacht Club or on the day of the event.
Harbor Hospice is a member of the National Hospice Regatta Alliance, a nonprofit, 501(c)3 association of hospice regattas, which independently raises money and awareness for local hospices.
