THE STORY:

"Sailing for the Bayshore!" 

On June 6-7, Bill and I will be participating in the Keyport Yacht Club’s Bill Volk Regatta to help raise money for the RAINE Foundation, a local bayshore organization dedicated to helping those in need.

The Bill Volk Regatta, now in its 15th year, is an annual event that combines competitive sailboat racing with fundraising. Skippers and crew from around the Raritan Bay area come together for two days of racing and help raise funds for a special cause. After Superstorm Sandy, the club created the “Sailing for the Bayshore” campaign to help people in the community who were struggling to recover from the storm. Since 2013, we have raised more than $30,000 to directly help the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

All of the money raised has directly benefited local Bayshore residents (RAINE does not take any administration fees), such as filling over 600 backpacks with school supplies for needy children or helping families who could not afford to heat their homes during the harsh winter. 

We are very excited to help raise money for such a great organization and helping the people in our community who need it the most. If you would like to make a secure online donation to the RAINE Foundation, please click on the "Donate to this Fundraiser" button or email me directly to send a donation by mail (sb_mulholland@yahoo.com).

We appreciate your support! 

About The RAINE Foundation

RAINE (Reaching All In Need Everyday) is a 501(c) (3) organization established in 2001 to assist children and families who are in crisis. Since its beginnings, RAINE has positively impacted our communities by providing food, clothing, and assistance during the holidays, along with other various necessities for families in crisis throughout the year. The RAINE team consists of compassionate, caring volunteers striving to make a difference in the lives of others.

In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, RAINE's reach and resources were extended to include the entire New Jersey shore area. In the days and weeks following Superstorm Sandy, RAINE was able to organize their "army of volunteers" to provide food, clothing, and other assistance to those affected, including serving over 20,000 meals per day to victims and first responders. 

About the Keyport Yacht Club and the Bill Volk Regatta

Founded in 1908, the Keyport Yacht Club is located in historic Keyport, New Jersey on the southwest shore of the Raritan Bay. For over a hundred years, the club has been providing a superior boating experience for local and regional water sport enthusiasts.

The Keyport Yacht Club hosted its first annual Bill Volk Memorial Regatta in 1994 to honor longtime club member, William Volk, Sr. who served as a trustee and chairman of the race committee and significantly upgraded the club’s race program. On June 8, 2001, the club held its first Regatta to benefit a charity to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Now in its 15th year, the Regatta has been held every June as an annual fundraising event.
