420 Fundraising Gala Saturday July 7

Fellow EYC members,

The gala fundraising party for the EYC’s new fleet of 420-class dinghies will be held at the Ephraim home of Scott and Duska Pearson (2928 Valentine Lane) at 7:00 PM on Saturday, July 7.  The party will feature music, beer, wine, cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres.  It is also great way to re-connect with your EYC friends, so please attend if you are able!

The EYC needs to raise at least $30,000 to purchase at least twelve 420s, which will represent a 50% increase from our current fleet of eight Flying Juniors.  Our current boats were built in 1996, and after years of hard use are showing their age.

All EYC members are welcome to attend the gala.  If you have not received a written invitation and you wish to attend, simply RSVP by email to jshea@gcmlp.com not later than 5 July.  There is no specific donation amount required to attend the gala.

In planning your charitable giving, please include the EYC.  If you are unable to attend the gala, but you wish to pledge, contact Scott Pearson at (312) 342-3937 or  spearson@gcmlp.com.  Or, you can give directly to the EYC using a credit card at www.eyc.org/donate.

As always, your gift to the EYC is tax-deductible because the EYC is qualified as a 501(c)(3) public charity.

Thank you for your generous support of the EYC!

Yours in Wind and Water,

Jay Lott, Commodore
