The fun doesn’t stop after the boat docks. All are invited back to the Rochester Yacht Club for a cocktail reception.

Our mistress of ceremonies, Rachel Barnhart (@rachbarnhart) from WROC News Channel 8, is sure to make this a fun evening to remember.

Having women participate in this inaugural event reminds us of the trailblazing women who made up the backbone of the Red Cross that Clara Barton founded 1881. Your attendance supports this institution that has remained strong and stable and one that helps many every day during local, national and international disasters.

The Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross responds to nearly 380 families a year who have been victims of a disaster. In addition, we continue to provide training in life-saving skill such as CPR and first aid while also providing nearly half of our nation’s blood supply. Proceeds from this tournament help these vital services and many more such as our services to the Armed Forces.
