Announcing a new Meetup for Windy City Explorers!

What: Red Sky Night!

When: Friday, August 27,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $75.00 per person

Where: Columbia Yacht Club
111 N. Lake Shore Drive
Chicago, IL 60601

If you've never been aboard the Columbia Yacht Club ship, you're in for a treat!! This vessel formerly served as a car, rail and passenger ferry between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Isle. When the government of Canada built a superhighway bridging these two locales, the ship was no longer needed! Enter some creative Chicagoans who needed a new clubhouse and voila!! Columbia members brought this ship all the way down the St. Lawrence Seaway into the Great Lakes to it's final destination at the foot of Randolph Street and Lake Michigan.

Alas, there is a high price for this adventure. But there's also a high price for cancer research. This event supports your fearless leader Tom and his battle to end cancer. My father passed years ago from this devastating disease and you yourself would be in the minority if your own life has not been touched by a loved one or acquaintance affected by cancer.

We are now routinely getting over one hundred participants for our free events with the Windy City Explorers. How many of you will give back a little by joining us for this charitable adventure?

Red Sky Night is a celebration of our efforts to eradicate Leukemia. It's a pre-regatta dinner dance and auction benefit the evening before the Leukemia Cup Regatta. Tom & Chantal will be racing aboard the Gyp-Sea on the following day. This is your chance to lend your support while having your very first dinner aboard the Abegweit! Wouldn't it be cool if we had an entire table of Windy City Explorers supporting this event?

As you consider the high price and priceless nature of this event, I ask you to search inside your heart and consider this small gift of support towards Leukemia Research. The tax deductible portion of this event is $40.00 which allows you a nice end-of-the-year tax benefit. Those of you who do attend this event with us will come away energized and enriched through this evening of celebration!

Those of you who join us will be in for some special raffle prizes of our own, just for the Windy City Explorers!

Your support would mean soooo much to me! If this event is a little too pricey for your budget, please consider clicking the link over at the left side of this page and offer your own contribution toward our goal!

This event is not expensive. It's a priceless opportunity to share some great times on the lakefront while supporting leukemia research!
