Tenth annual Sharp HospiceCare Benefit Regatta brings boating enthusiasts, health care professionals and community together for worthy cause.
All hands are on-deck as the community comes together with boating enthusiasts and health care professionals at the 10th annual Sharp HospiceCare Benefit Regatta on Friday, Aug. 24, and Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012. Hosted by Sharp HospiceCare, Coronado Yacht Club and Cortez Racing Association, the event will support Sharp HospiceCare’s Homes for Hospice campaign, an initiative to build hospice homes in San Diego.
The event kicks off Friday evening, Aug. 24, with a pre-race dinner, followed by all-day festivities on Saturday, Aug. 25, as guests board sponsored yachts and cruise along the race course for a breathtaking view of the regatta and the San Diego Bay.
All proceeds from the regatta support Sharp HospiceCare, an organization that provides comprehensive care and compassionate support for patients and struggling with a life-limiting illness and their families. This year’s event is expected to net $250,000 for Sharp HospiceCare’s Homes for Hospice campaign. So far, the campaign has led to the completion of two homes in the neighborhoods of La Mesa and Del Cerro, while a third home in the South Bay is in the works. Leading the effort as campaign chair is Scott McMillin, chairman of the board of The Corky McMillin Companies.
