This Saturday, August 9, I'm participating in a Sail-a-thon on Westlake to benefit the Casa Pacifica Children's Crisis Center. This is the 10th anniversary of this event, which last year raised over $30,000 to benefit victims of child abuse and neglect. For nine hours participants sail "laps" around Westlake. Typically participants sail about 30-40 laps although my team is shooting to break the record of 47 (me, my daughter Alexis, her friend Katherine, and my daughter Megan).
I'd like to ask each of you to help by sponsoring us. Typical sponsorship levels are $.25/lap, $.50/lap, or $1/lap (about $12, $25, or $50, respectively). It really is a great cause. If you're interested please just send me email; after the event I'll report on how we did :)
I should add - thanks to all my friends who have already pledged their support. If we sail 50 laps, thereby breaking the record, we will have raised over $1,000. That's terrific!
