Santa Barbara Yacht Club Celebrating Healthcare Volunteers 

Join us Saturday, September 9, 2017, for Santa Barbara’s largest annual Regatta and cruising event. A full day of yacht racing and cruising, champagne brunch, hearty BBQ dinner, musical bands, and family activities – all for a good cause.

The Charity Regatta is part of a national movement and has become a signature
event in Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara Yacht Club is proud to support
Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care as a way for the members to give back to
the Santa Barbara community. Since its inception in 2005, the Charity Regatta
has raised over $1.2 million so that Santa Barbara County families have access to
comprehensive and compassionate, home health and hospice care from
Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care regardless of the ability to pay.

Stay tuned for more information about sponsorships and tickets.
