Every year, Sail Chicago ends the sailing season with festivities, food, drinks, and member recognition, and we are thrilled to invite our members, students, and their guests back to Columbia Yacht Club for a second year. Join us for a buffet dinner, cash bar, and a chance to celebrate a successful sailing season with fellow Sail Chicago members. We will recognize those who have excelled in the organization, either through their achievement or through their volunteer service. New this year is a silent auction to help raise money for fleet renewal. Just a few of the items donated for the silent auction include: A one-hour "Boatyard Party" for 20 at Trader Todd's Cocktail-making class for two at Koval Distillery, craft distiller, in Chicago, Frogg Toggs rain suit including a choice of men/women's style, color, and size, Dinner for two at Chicago's famous Twin Anchors Restaurant, Gill Pro sailing gloves, $40 in gift cards for Weather Mark Tavern $50 in gift cards for Flagship Tavern $60 gift credit toward any ticket/cruise on Island Party Boat Lagunitas' "Sip & Spill" package (a case of their signature IPA, custom mason jars, a T-shirt and party accessories) Whiskey Acres Tour and Tasting for 8 Vineyard Vines silk men's tie For updates on silent auction items check Sail Chicago's Facebook page. Winners of the silent auction can pay via cash, check or credit card. Winners must be able to pay on-site. The event is open to members, students, and 1-2 guests. The cost is $30 per person and there will be a cash bar. Email Sarah (Pellegrino) Wirth with questions about the event and Rachel Granneman for questions about the silent auction. We are excited to relive the adventures of the last sailing season -- good food and a fun time are assured. Please register and pay by November 10th.
