Potomac Boat Club
Rising Stars Dinner and Silent Auction
A Benefit for the Open Sculling Program
Save the Date: March 26, 2011
The Potomac Boat Club Open Sculling Program is hosting the first annual “Rising Stars” dinner and silent auction on March 26, 2011, to benefit our Olympic hopefuls. Potomac Boat Club members will receive an invitation in the mail soon, so please keep an eye out for it and RSVP as quickly as possible. Seating is limited for this special event!
The Open Sculling Program attracts talented athletes from across the United States to train for elite national and international competition. The Program has produced athletes who have earned Olympic, World and National Championship medals.
As we approach the 2011 events that will qualify boats for the 2012 Olympics, our focus is sharp and our goal is to earn the honor of representing our country internationally and to bring prestige to the club and program. Like that of aspiring athletes before us, we strive in our dedication, perseverance, and hope to embody the tradition of Potomac Boat Club.
Proceeds of this event will fund travel expenses and entry fees for 2011 selection regattas, the purchase of the most current technology, and state-of the-art equipment and resources.
In rowing, not all the champions are on the water. There are literally hundreds of sponsors, officials, and coaches who make Olympic hopes possible. We invite you to share in this an exciting evening—and the enduring dreams of our athletes.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
