2006 Hospice Regatta (15th Annual)
September 8th & 9th, 2006

Despite heavy competition from two other regattas and other local events, Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island's 15th Annual "Sail for Others" Regatta & Walk weekend raised almost $82,000 in support of compassionate end-of-life care for Rhode Islanders. HHCRI's signature fundraising weekend kicked off Friday evening with the "PreGatta Party" - a fabulous pre-regatta cocktail party hosted by Jeannie and Sam Brickle at their beautiful waterfront home in Barrington. Party-goers sampled gourmet hors d'ouevres and enjoyed cocktails aside the pool while taking in a gorgeous sunset over Narragansett Bay.

The following morning, in absolutely perfect weather, 17 boats raced in a family-oriented pursuit race south of Bristol Harbor while scores of "landlubbers" walked either a 2-mile or 5-mile route around scenic Colt State Park in Bristol. Robert Manchester and Flying Turtle of Barrington won the coveted Hospice Regatta Trophy, awarded to the crew that raised the most money, while Raymond Mendillo & Family of North Providence were awarded the Hospice Walk Cup, awarded to the top-fundraising walk team. Over $5,000 was raised between them!

Afterwards, participants met up with family and friends to enjoy a traditional lobster boil and clam bake on the waterfront, generously hosted by The Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol. Thank you to everyone who raced, walked, sponsored, advertised, fundraised, and/or partied to support Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island! See you next year!

RI 04 Regatta Photo

Hospice is About Helping People - people who are nearing the end of life and the families who care for them. Hospice helps people with life-threatening illness or disease live comfortably and without pain. We help people to live their life with dignity and purpose when time matters most.

The Hospice Regatta is our community's way of giving back and showing appreciation to our doctors, nurses, spiritual and bereavement coordinators and volunteers who tend to the needs of others every day. Hospice events are also about having fun while remembering family and friends who have passed away.

The Hospice Regatta will generate more than $110,000 through Sponsorships, Advertising, Race Entries, PreGatta Party & Awards Dinner. More than 600 people are expected to participate in various activities - be it sailing, walking and/or attending social events.
Media and community outreach will saturate Rhode Island in the weeks before the event, increasing awareness of HHCRI's impact on the community and the support of our donors.
The Regatta is a volunteer-driven event.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss Regatta Sponsorship options in more detail, please call me at (401) 727-7074. Thank you for your consideration.
Great things will come from this event!

Director, HHCRI Foundation

An avid sailor, Hospice volunteer and patient

HHCRI Regatta Race Results

Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island's 10th Annual Regatta, held on September 13 and 14 on Narragansett Bay, attracted over 69 racing yachts and grossed over $133,385.

"This year's Regatta," stated Donna Gillroy, VP of Development at HHCRI, "raised approximately $30,000 more than the best year. We are very grateful to our sponsors, the Regatta committee, especially our co-chairs Sally Phillips and Scott Walker, and to everyone who supported the event."

The Regatta kicked off on Friday evening with a sponsor appreciation party at the waterfront home of Mr. & Mrs. Stanley Livingston in Bristol. Over 300 people attended. Following the Regatta, approximately 500 people enjoyed a Lobster Boil dinner at the Brewer Cove Haven Marina in Barrington.

David Schwartz and the crew of his 40-footer Mishchief, out of the Bristol Yacht Club finished first with Nelson Weiderman's Kima finishing 15 seconds behind the winner.

The funds raised support programs that serve the medical, emotional, and spiritual needs of families and patients with complex and serious illnesses. It is also a qualifying event for the 2003 National Hospice Alliance Championship Regatta to be held April, 2003 in Annapolis, MD.

We extend sincere thanks to our sponsors and patrons whose support has helped to make the 2002 Hospice Regatta an overwhelming success.

The Providence Journal -- October 2000
HOSPICE CARE RHODE ISLAND -- Donors mingle with regatta captains, crews

On the eve of the Hospice Care of Rhode Island's September 16 regatta, the largest charity boat race on Narragansett Bay, it; major sponsors, some boat captains, crew members and patrons mingled under a tent by the Bay.

"Nervous….Oh no, " said boat captain Bill Plunkett of Barrington. "This is for a good cause."

Last year Plunkett and his wife Nancy, outfitted the crew, primarily from Barrington with eye-catching tie-dye shirts that netted them the best-dressed award. This year Plunkett and crew dressed in white shirts with red and navy trim; on the back was a photo taken at last year's race.

Plunkett noted that the regatta has had large Barrington contingent because the charity race was started by Sally and Kent Phillips, who moved to Barrington from Annapolis in the early 1990's. (Kent came to Rhode Island to work for Textron.)

In Annapolis, Sally played an integral role in the area's hospice regatta. She suggested a similar fundraising event for Hospice Care of Rhode Island.

George Miller, chairman of the board said that the regatta has contributed some $600,000 to Hospice Care of Rhode Island in its eight years. The organization specializes in giving medical, emotional and spiritual care to terminally ill adults and children.

The Phillipses attended the sponsor soiree at the waterfront Wickford home of Everett and Phoebe Fernald. "This party has been at a lovely beachfront home every year so guests can enjoy a beautiful sunset," Phillips said. Food businesses such as Ryan's Market, Center Market, Dave's Marketplace, Champlin's Seafood and Gregg's donated the food.

As co-chairs Peter Kohlsaat and Betsy Steinman greeted guests at the entrance, Steinman noted that "this party has been at various locations around the state for the purpose of sending the message that the organization serves all of Rhode Island."

Later, in the tent a short speaking program included remarks from the regatta's honorary chair, Jean-Pierre Mouligne. He lives in Newport and won the Class II Race Around the World Alone in 1998-99.

He said he is raising money for his own around-the world ventures. "I'm in a crowd of sponsors. It's like a kid in a candy store. It's not fair, he said. "But really, this is a great event and a good cause."

As for the Plunketts, after the sunset they left the party unaware that they would be rewarded not for their colorful sailing outfits, but for their speed. His boat, Main Sheet, won its class.
