The Gala 2017 – Save the Date
The Gala team has been busy preparing for the 2017 event, Supporting High Achievement on the Water. Mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 23. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with cocktails and shopping the fabulous selection of silent and live auction items. New this year will be several opportunity drawings from which to choose. Dinner will be a delicious choice of plated prime rib or salmon filet. Staff Commodore Mary Bacon will return as our Mistress of Ceremony and live auctioneer, and DJ “Amv1s1on” will spin dance music late into the evening. You don’t want to miss it!
The Gala was a great success. BCYC members turned out in support of the Sailing Foundation in every way. From the auction items donated, cash sponsorships, thousands of volunteer hours (adults and kids), materials and supplies, use of the club, donations of food, water bottles, wine, champagne and vodka – together we raised $40,000! Those funds have been put to great use, with purchases that support activities, education and competition on the water. Be sure to check out the new floating dock on A Dock and the kayaks and paddle boards available for all members to use. And plan to join us again this year for The Gala 2017!
