Baltimore, MD – RCM&D hosted its 28th Annual Regatta on Friday, September 15 at the Downtown Sailing Center/Baltimore Museum of Industry Pavilion on the Inner Harbor. Thanks to the generous support of our corporate sponsors and valued vendor partners, this year’s event left a significant impact on attendees, beneficiaries and the entire community.
The RCM&D Regatta is a celebration of a year-long community service and fundraising effort. The event brings together representatives from regional beneficiaries and individuals they serve along with sponsors and employees for the opportunity to learn to sail, compete and take part in an afternoon celebration on Baltimore’s waterfront.
“We’re extremely proud of the Regatta’s rich history. The event last week was nearly perfect with beautiful weather, inspiring and touching stories from the beneficiaries and many employees, sponsors and business partners able to attend,” said Matt Kahn, RCM&D President.
This year, we raised $114,000 for our five regional beneficiaries: Elk Hill, Horizon Day Camp, One Love Foundation, The Hiding Place and The Baltimore Station. These funds will help the beneficiaries continue providing services and resources to children with behavioral and mental challenges, children with cancer, those experiencing relationship abuse, women in crises and veterans looking to get back on their feet. To gain a deeper understanding of how these funds will positively impact our beneficiaries, read the full memo here.
“Our 28th Annual Regatta was a record-breaking year, in terms of attendance and amount raised,” said Katie Caple, RCM&D Vice President of Corporate Outreach. “We are so proud to give each organization over $22,000 so they can continue to live out their mission and support those in need.”
We look forward to continuing to support our local communities again next year for the 29th Annual Regatta. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements as we embark on another year of making a difference in our communities.
