Leukemia Cup Kicks off 2019 Planning with Club Leadership

The 2019 Annapolis Leukemia Cup Regatta season kicked off on Saturday, January 26, with a Commodores’ and Leadership Luncheon at the home of Lynn Ohman and John Heintz. Heintz, the leading individual fundraiser for the 2018 Regatta and first Annapolis Triple Crown of Charity Racing Trophy winner, delivered an opening welcome followed by an introduction from Leukemia Cup Chair Patrick Shannon and inspirational remarks from Gary Jobson, who was in attendance with his wife Janice. AYC’s leadership team turned out in force with Commodore Jim and Lori Ellis, Vice Commodore Jonathan and Molly Bartlett, Rear Commodore Ed and Cindy Hartman, Treasurer Tim and Gretchen Cusack, and Principal Race Officer Bobby Frey and Lynda Smith all in attendance. AYC’s former Entertainment Committee Chair, Cindy Hartman, was announced as the co-chair for the Leukemia Cup Auction and Summer Gala being held at the newly restored Skipjack on Friday, May 31 (stay tuned for more information on tickets and auction items). AYC member Bill Natter has volunteered to lead the “Team AYC” participation and fundraising, a voluntary effort organized among individual AYC members to support the Regatta both on and off the water. The Leukemia Cup Regatta team also announced that there will be a public Kickoff for 2019 Regatta at AYC’s new Sailing Center in late March/early April (date and details being finalized).

                          

The event was attended by leaders from sailing clubs and organizations from Annapolis and the upper Chesapeake, including AYC, EYC, SSA, Rock Creek Racing Association, and Gibson Island Yacht Squadron, with letters of support from Miles River Yacht Club, Herring Bay Yacht Club, West River Sailing Club, and Herrington Harbor Sailing Association. LLS is working to broaden participation in and the impact of the Regatta fundraising efforts in 2019.
