On June 6, 2020, Western Carolina Sailing Club will host the 9th Annual Diva Regatta & Island Party benefiting Safe Harbor. Over the last 8 years, this event has raised more than $60,500 for Safe Harbor, and we hope to blow our fundraising goal out of the water again this year!
The Diva Regatta includes a Distance Course (Pursuit Start) open to all boats with 2 fleets; one requiring a female at the helm and the other requiring a female participating on board. We round out the evening with the Island Party, featuring raffles and a silent auction, delicious appetizers, dinner and drinks, live music and a sailing awards ceremony.
The Diva Regatta & Island Party is a great event supporting an even greater cause, Safe Harbor. Safe Harbor is a private 501(c)3 non-profit organization that offers a continuum of services for survivors of domestic violence and their children in Greenville, Anderson, Pickens and Oconee Counties. Services include a 24/7 help line, safe emergency shelters, counseling for survivors and their children, advocacy, transitional housing, domestic violence education classes, parenting classes, and group support.
If you have questions about the event or are interested in sponsoring, please contact our Diva Regatta & Island Party Chair, Dacia Schrecengost.
