Coronado Yacht Club, Coronado Cays Yacht Club and the Navy Yacht club have once again partnered for a cause to host the 11th annual Make-A-Wish® San Diego fundraiser – the Amazing Race for Wishes – in Coronado, CA on October 27, 2019. This year’s event will take place at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club and will once again be emceed by NBC 7’s Dagmar Midcap and this year, features Jim Shirey as auctioneer extraordinaire. The program will also feature In Midlife Crisis as the entertainment for the event.
With a goal of recruiting 20 teams and reaching a cumulative total of 1 Million Dollars, Coronado’s Amazing Race Committee Co-Chairs Renee Wilson and Lisa Brendan are leading the charge to develop a fun-filled and adventurous bike race, an electric boat challenge and an exciting banquet with raffles, live, and silent auction.
Teams will follow clues during the race and compete for the highest score to win. Bike teams will consist of 10 members, and electric boat teams will consist of 6-10 members. Each team will raise funds to make wishes come true!
Net proceeds from this event will be donated to Make-A-Wish® San Diego, a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with critical illnesses. Wishes can give kids the strength they need to fight harder. For children who are battling a critical illness, a wish can give them and their families a chance to believe that anything is possible. Doctors use wishes as part of the treatment plans in some cases and research has shown that wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that may give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival.
This event is not exclusive to yacht club members; anyone can build a bike team or electric boat team, or attend the auction at the Cays Yacht Club and help donate to a great cause.
