Annually the Metedekonk Sailing Club holds a fundraiser called “Women Raising Sails for a Cause” to support a local charity. The event consists of a sailing regatta followed by a casual dinner in their sailing club. In the 2012 event, eight boats competed in the regatta with the crew and boat of “Celestine” raising the most donations for the Kortney Rose Foundation. The winning team were Dawn Wagner (skipper) and crew members Lisa Scott-Brennan, Colleen Van Pell and Mary Beth King. The Kortney Rose Foundation was honored to be the recipient of the funds raised from this event. We were welcomed in just like a club member and were excited by the outcome of this wonderful event. Just about $10,000 was donated to our mission. We cannot thank Colleen VanPell, event chair, and all the members of the Metedeconk River Yacht Club, for such a wonderful and generous event.
