Annapolis Mayor Proclaims June 11 Annapolis Leukemia Cup Regatta Day

1regattaAnnapolis, Md.—Mayor Joshua J. Cohen has named Saturday, June 11 as Annapolis Leukemia Cup Regatta Day, calling “upon all citizens to redouble their appreciation for service to one’s community and fellow man as the highest calling one can heed.” The regatta, a major fundraiser for Maryland’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, kicks-off with a Sailor’s Launch Party from 6:00-9:00 pm on Friday, June 10 at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. The event is open to the public, with the $35.00 admission fee including food and beverages. The next morning, the regatta itself starts at 11:00 am off the shores of historic Annapolis, followed by the Saturday evening Crew Party at the Eastport Yacht Club from 4:00-10:00 pm, and featuring food, beverages that include a rum bar, and live music by Mid Life Crisis; admission for that event is also $35.00.

 The public is invited to come out and support these important fundraisers to help find a cure for Leukemia and other related blood cancers.

What The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society does:

  • Provides critical assistance to patients battling blood cancer in the following ways:
    • Furnishing financial aid to assist with everyday expenses for patient medical care (more than $5.8M in support this fiscal year alone)
    • Co-pay assistance of up to $18,500 to offset costly treatment expenses. (more that $30M in support this FY)
    • Funding the world’s best research leading to cures for blood cancers
    • Professionally staffing support groups throughout Maryland
  • The LLS receives no federal funds, and is completely supported by private donations:
    • 75 cents of every dollar raised by LLS goes directly to its mission
    • programs like the Leukemia Cup Regatta raise much-needed funds and awareness to support the critical and lifesaving work of LLS
