NEWPORT BEACH — Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club will kick off its annual Leukemia Cup Regatta on May 6 to help raise money to advance the mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and help improve the lives of patients and their families.
The 2016 regatta includes several scheduled events for boaters and yachtsmen alike who would like to have fun while raising money for a notable cause.
Events start on May 6 with the Electric Boat Poker Run & Auction at the club located at 1601 Bayside Drive in Corona del Mar.
On June 4 the Leukemia Cup Regatta-PHRF will take place followed by the Harbor 20 and Junior Leukemia Cup Regattas on June 5. Racers will be competing for the Bahia Corinthian YC Leukemia Cup Perpetual Trophy as well as prizes from first through sixth for highest donations collected.
For those who prefer to hit the links instead of the water, a Leukemia Cup Golf Weekend Tournament & Auction will be held at Tustin Ranch Golf Course on June 10.
