Enjoying a day on the Chesapeake is not your typical charity event. Hospice Cup tickets are now on sale! Join us as a Spectator and then come to the infamous Shore Party. Hospice Cup XXXII – America’s largest charity regatta will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2013 on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay.
Watch the Races from our Spectator Boats
By purchasing tickets for the spectator boat you not only get to be in on the excitement of the race, you help us raise funds for hospice patients and their families. 2013 Spectator boats include a 76-foot sail boat, a power catamaran and other luxury yachts. Get close to the action, “race” the other spectator boat to the starting line and enjoy a great day on the Bay.
The SPECTATOR BOAT leaves the dock between 10 and 11 am and heads out to the race circle. The on-board race commentator will help decipher the race, pointing out leaders, rules of race and interesting facts about our racing teams. On board you are treated to a catered lunch, beer and wine and nautical entertainment (knot tying competition, trivia etc.)
The SHORE PARTY is from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm and will be held at the Annapolis Sailing School, on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Shore Party offers live music, open bar, full catered meal including fresh shucked Oysters, great appetizers and side dishes from Graul’s Market and much more.
Spectator tickets are $150.00 per person and Shore Party tickets are $85.00 for general public and $50.00 for registered sailors and their crew. You can purchase tickets at www.hospicecup.org .
2013 marks 32 years of the Hospice Cup Regatta. To date, we have raised over 8 million dollars for hospice care. With your help we can continue to help our participating hospices provide quality, end-of-life-care to all who seek it. Hospice Cup XXXII is raising funds for Pediatric Hospice Programs, including Chesapeake Kids, Montgomery Kids, and other members of the Pediatric Alliance.
Hospice Cup is the largest fundraising regatta in the United States and is the original hospice regatta. Hospice Cup raises funds for regional nonprofit hospices to aid them to continue providing end of life care to those in need regardless of ability to pay. For more information, go to www.hospice.org.
