Celebrating 25 Years and $1 Million Raised for 50 Nonprofits
RCM&D, a leading independent risk management, insurance and employee benefits firm, will hold its 25th Annual Regatta on Friday, September 21 at the Downtown Sailing Center/Baltimore Museum of Industry Pavilion. The racing event is the organization’s largest philanthropic initiative for various nonprofits who serve the mid-Atlantic region.
This year, fundraising efforts and corporate sponsorships will benefit four organizations that provide critical services for people in need within our community: Asylee Women Enterprise, Dads Works / Moms Works, The League for People with Disabilities, and Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET). In recognition of the organization’s 25 years of service and dedication to raising funds and awareness for more than 50 nonprofit organizations, RCM&D set a goal of raising $100,000 in 2018, the largest in the history of the event.
“The Regatta is a unique kind of fundraiser,” stated Katie Caple, Regatta Committee Chair and Vice President of Corporate Outreach for RCM&D. Employees representing the firm’s five mid-Atlantic offices volunteer their time and resources to host a variety of internal and community-based fundraising activities to help reach the goal. And, employee advocates work throughout the year with the beneficiaries to coordinate group volunteer outings for each of the organizations to boost awareness and engagement.
“Along with the employee advocacy and support, corporate sponsorships are critical to the success of the Regatta,” commented Katie Caple. Corporate sponsors receive several benefits, including the unique opportunity to compete in the sailing race on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor alongside the beneficiaries and the people they serve. During the race, RCM&D hosts an afternoon celebration on the water at the Baltimore Museum of Industry’s Pavilion, where guests cheer on the sailors, enjoy lunch and a variety of fun activities.
Throughout the history of the Regatta, the RCM&D business community has come together to raise more than $1 million in funding with 100% of the proceeds donated directly to the beneficiaries. “At the center of RCM&D’s corporate culture is a commitment to the communities we serve. We are proud to support these organizations by raising essential funds for their programs and helping to increase awareness of their missions,” stated Skip Counselman, Chairman and CEO of RCM&D. “The Regatta brings together our business partners, employees, beneficiaries and the community for one common cause, and that’s to help people in need and have a great time while doing it.” Learn more about RCM&D Regatta here.
