This year, community members from the area enjoyed a fun day in the sun to benefit a worthy cause. While participating in boat races and other water festivities, the attendees supported the local Red Cross. Thanks to the community event, the 29th annual Erie Regatta raised $36,142 for the local Red Cross.
"We would like to truly thank all those who contributed to making this year's event a success," said Pam Masi, executive director of the local Red Cross. "Without support of the community and events like the Erie Regatta, we couldn't perform our lifesaving work, every day in the community."
All proceeds from the event will benefit the organization's disaster relief services and other preparedness programs.
