Hospice Regattas netted over $1 million in 2009 for hospice care in their communities!
Over $13.8 million raised nationwide since 1982.
That is the message conveyed by the National Hospice Regatta Alliance in their Fall newsletter.  The National Hospice Regatta Alliance (NHRA) is a national 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to raise awareness of Hospice care through charity sailboat regattas — helping and promoting local hospice regattas, providing a communications network among them, and by hosting a national championship event.  From its inception  in 1982, the Alliance has grown to 27 independent regional hospice regattas across the US that publicize Hospice care, through the excitement of sailing and festivities related to the regattas.
We are fortunate to have a NHRA Director here on Lake Norman.  Treez Decker joined the 11 member National Hospice Regatta Alliance Board in 2009. The gift of time and energy Treez has provided to organizing the Lake Norman Hospice Regatta, a benefit for Hospice & Palliative Care Lake Norman, has been vital to the success of the event.  Treez is uniquely prepared to share her talents with the Alliance, while providing our local Hospice Regatta team with ideas gleaned from successful events nationwide.  When you see Treez, tell her “thanks� and ask how you can help.
Last year the Lake Norman Hospice Regatta raised $4,500.00.
For the 10th Anniversary we are setting a goal of $7,500.00.  We will need everyone’s participation, both on and off the water, to reach this objective.  Individual donations and corporate sponsorships are welcome and encouraged.
