AYC ANNUAL MEETING RAFFLE SUCCESS
The AYC Foundation would like to thank ALL the members who donated to the Foundation through the Parking Spot Raffle at this year's annual meeting. Through your extreme generosity, the AYCF raised more than $8k in donations, which goes directly to support our recipients like Leo, Warrior Sailing, and many others. Your donations fund the grants and scholarships that enable our amateur sailors to pursue their dreams at the highest levels of our sport AND support programs that introduce veterans, under-served members of our community, and others to the joy of being on the water and the opportunities that racing and the maritime industry can offer. We are so proud and humbled to directly support all these individuals, and we cannot do it without you. Thank you for all you give and for your support of the AYC Foundation and all its work. Stay tuned for more AYC Foundation news and events!
If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, please contact Matt Schubert (President) or Jenn Wulff (Vice President) or visit our website.
