THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS!

We are hosting our 4th Annual "Raise the Sail" event for Columbia Sailing School

 

But this time, we are going VIRTUAL!

Winners announced at 6:00 PM on Friday, June 12

Thanks to our supporters, we raised over $59,000 to benefit the Columbia Sailing School at our 2019 event! Proceeds will be used to replace outdated equipment, keep with national safety standards, and provide scholarships to children from under-resourced areas of Chicago.

 

The Columbia Sailing School is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.  Our Mission is “Shaping stewards for our Waters.” We’re providing marine and sailing education with a focus on protecting our local ecosystem and the waters of Lake Michigan. In 2019 we had just under 2000 youth participants and over 300 adults participate in our programming.
