Potomac Boat Club
Rising Stars Dinner and Silent Auction
An event to benefit the club’s Olympic Hopefuls
An invitation to Save the Date from Open Sculling Coach Reilly Dampeer:
The Potomac Boat Club Open Sculling Program is hosting the second annual Rising Stars dinner and silent auction on January 21, 2011, to benefit our Olympic hopefuls.
I am pleased to announce that this year’s event will take place at the prestigious University Club in downtown Washington, DC. 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, since space will be limited for this special event.
The Open Sculling Program attracts talented athletes from across the United States to Potomac Boat Club to train for elite national and international competition. The Program has produced athletes who have earned Olympic, World, Pan American and National Championship medals. As we approach the upcoming Olympic year, our focus is sharp and our goals are to earn the honor of representing our country internationally and bring prestige to the club and program. Like all aspiring athletes who came before us, we strive with dedication, perseverance, and the hope to embody the competitive spirit and tradition that is Potomac Boat Club.
Proceeds raised from this event will fund travel expenses and entry fees for the 2012 Olympic selection regattas to be held in Chula Vista, California. It will also fund the purchase of the latest training technology, state-of the-art equipment and resources for our athletes.
The 2011 event was a huge success, and I look forward to achieving even higher goals at this year’s Rising Stars event. PBC community support is key to our success. There are literally hundreds of sponsors, officials, coaches, and other individuals who make the achievement of an Olympic dream possible. We invite you to share this exciting evening with us and to be part of the enduring dreams of our athletes.

Thank you so much for your continued support.
