Leukemia Cup Fundraising Kick-off Party

We are officially kicking off the 20th Anniversary year of the NCA Leukemia Cup Regatta Series on May 18 at the Capital Yacht Club. Join us for food, drinks, music and fun in support of the LLS mission. Festivities begin at 4:00pm and are FREE! You can register your team now: https://nca.dojiggy.com/ng/index.cfm/a919802/regCatalog/regfees/?p=a6156cfe

The Leukemia Cup Regatta is the biggest sailing regatta of the year in the DC area. This will be the 20th year of the regatta. Since 1993, participants in Leukemia Cup Regatta events throughout the country have raised over $44 million in funding for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

It’s support like this that has enabled LLS over the years to fund research and discover new drug therapies, bringing us closer to cures. Since 1949, the survival rate for many blood cancer patients has doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled.

With your support, we can beat cancer!

      As did I. Too bad SCOW had such a weak showing.

    I paid for a sailing lesson with SCOW that start this summer. I can't find any of the info. Can anyone help me find a contact person?
    See you all on Sat and am looking forward to the Leukemia Fund Raiser.
    Thanks!

    I just joined this group and this will be my first event! Is there anything I need to know? Is there a dress code; metro close by etc?

      Michelle, this event is actually hosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), but I've shared it with our meetup members to get the word out and drum up support. Please look at the link, http://www.leukemiacu...­ and RSVP to Briana. There's no dress code, our group of sailors are very casual. I believe the closest metro station would be L'Enfant Plaza.

    Elisabeth and I will both go. Is this RSVP all we need to do or do we also RSVP to Brianna Walsh at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?

      John, it would be best for everyone to contact Brianna, but I will give her a tally as well.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
