NEXT WEEK AT THE OPENING DAY OF THE U.S. SAILBOAT SHOW:

Annapolis Boat Shows has teamed up with Pusser’s to throw a big donor appreciation party in honor of those affected by the hurricane, Thursday, October 5 from 6 – 9 pj.m. at Pusser’s. A donation of $75 to your choice of relief funds (charities) buys you admission to this great celebration of the love and resiliency of the Caribbean people. Food, drink, and entertainment will be provided at no additional charge, and there will be opportunities to make larger donations.

Second, there will be boxes throughout the Show to toss your “soggy dollars” into. All donations will go directly to hurricane relief efforts. So, bring some cash with you and help fund the rebuilding in the Caribbean.

This is our chance to show the people of the Caribbean how much the sailing community loves them and to help them recover quickly. Bring your heart and your wallet to the Annapolis Boat Shows, and join the celebration.
