The 6th Annual Duwamish Rowing Club Fundraiser will be held Saturday, March 25th from 6-10 pm at the Highline Park Improvement Club. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 for youth membership and regatta fees, coaching time, maintenance and upkeep of our boats, and essential repairs.
The Duwamish Rowing Club is a community-driven, non-profit program, established in 2011, dedicated to bringing the sport of rowing to the residents of South Park, Georgetown, White Center, and surrounding neighborhoods. We offer affordable recreational access to the Duwamish River through low-cost adult and youth memberships. In the past 6 years our team has raced in 8 local regattas, had more than 20 youth participate in our program, and have built a volunteer-supported program operating out of a small boathouse on the banks of the Duwamish River.
Event tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance at http://drcfundraiser.brownpapertickets.com/
