The 18th Annual Oswego County Hospice Cup Regatta will be held at the Oswego Yacht Club/International Marina on Saturday June 17th.

Last year’s event raised more than $20,000 and in the past 17 years has brought in over $345,000. This money has helped the Friends of Oswego County Hospice defray the costs of non-medical expenses for Oswego County Hospice patients and their families and supported the local hospice, local care provided by Oswego County Hospice.

Events for the day include sailing races which begin at 10:00 a.m. The on-shore reception, open to the public, begins at 4:00 p.m. and features appetizers, buffet dinner and beverages. During the reception, our guests can participate in an auction featuring more than 25 items, take a chance on our drawings, buy Regatta T’s and enjoy the sights of the Oswego Harbor and Lake Ontario.

Tickets for the reception are $15 and can be purchased in advance. The reception, hosted by Eagle Beverage and Lighthouse Lanes, features food and beverages donated by dozens of local restaurants. Call (315) 343-5223 for tickets.

Major sponsors for this year’s Oswego County Hospice Cup Regatta are Exelon Generation, Foster Funeral Home, PathFinder Bank, Kinney Drugs Foundation, and Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield.
