Estimated costs are in the $4,000 – $5,000 range per man.  Expenses include air fare, lodging, food, transportation and rowing fees. Our simple message is “Let’s help them get there”!

  • If you can’t attend but are able to donate we are asking for a minimum amount of $20.   If you can attend, $20 at the door will gain admission.
  • For those considering a sponsorship level, a donation of $1,000 will get your name or company’s name on the boat they will race (there’s room for up to four sponsors at the $1,000 level).

Our fundraiser at Crescent will offer a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction.  We will be serving hot dogs, hamburgers, salads and snacks.  Beer, soda and water will be served and if you’d like to bring a bottle of wine, feel free.


What a great way to not only celebrate our quad’s entry in the World’s but to celebrate our 150th anniversary.  This is great timing on the part of our quad!
