    Join the 100 Club of Chicago and ChicagoMOD on Saturday, July 29 for the first annual Gold Star Regatta at the Jackson Park Yacht Club.

     

    The Chicago Police Sailing Association and the Chicago Area Sail Association will host a competitive distance regatta that will benefit three organizations that aid Chicago first responders and their families: The 100 Club of Chicago, Chicago Police Memorial Foundation and Brotherhood for the Fallen. President of CPSA and Chicago police officer, Marlon Harvey, came up with the idea to host a fundraising event as a way to give back to the community.

     

    “The Gold Star Regatta is a way to honor the surviving families and the memories of the City of Chicago’s Fallen. Words cannot express the appreciation I have for CASRA’s role in making this dream of mine a reality,” Harvey said.

     

    The family friendly event will host the regatta and a post-race party, which will have beverages, local food trucks, entertainment and more. Join us for a fun day of activities to benefit a phenomenal cause!
