Sails Up 4 Cancer, now in its seventh year, is a charity organization dedicated to funding care, cures, research, education, and prevention for all types of cancer. This is accomplished through the art and enjoyment of sailing and other terrific events. Sails Up 4 Cancer has been able to assist many local cancer care centers plus Hospice organizations, our local Cancer Care Hospital, children afflicted with cancer, and both individuals and families struggling financially while battling cancer.

The Lone Wolf Trio will be on stage delivering the music audiences want to hear. Blending straight up rock and roll, diverse and alternative styling with a good time, hard driving sound, Lone Wolf locks the groove for dancing and listening. Come dance to some great music for a great cause!

Mystic Cornhole Company offers custom high-quality, heavy-duty boards and runs terrific tournaments.

Sailing instructions and a brief Q& A session will also be held for the Skippers participating in Saturday’s Regatta. Come play and listen under the big tent. Free parking.

Sails Up 4 Cancer is proud to announce the fulfillment of a $10,000 grant request to L+M Cancer Center in Waterford, CT. The donated funds will be used for their Transportation Fund and Patients Assistance Fund. As a sub-part of the Patients Assistance Fund, L+M has established the Single Women/ Head of Household Fund.

“Sails Up 4 Cancer is extremely proud to be one of the first to acknowledge and contribute to this often neglected need,” said Bob Davis, CEO & Founder of Sails Up. “Some of the most frequent requests for funds from our Spinnaker Fund account come from single mothers.”

Sails Up 4 Cancer is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to funding research, education, care and prevention for all types of cancer.

“As they always do, Sails Up 4 Cancer has recognized an important cancer-related need in our community and stepped up to fulfill it. Very often, there is so much focus on cancer and the appropriate cures for it that some of the important incidentals such as reliable transportation to and from treatment can be overlooked. That is why we are so privileged to have a knowledgeable and generous partner like our good friends at Sails Up 4 Cancer. Their support for our Cancer Center and our patients over the years has been nothing short of incredible,” said Bill Stanley, Vice President of Development & Community Relations at L+M Hospital.

“The Cancer Center is so grateful for the grant money from Sails Up 4 Cancer. We all know someone who is affected by cancer, and with the monies from this grant, we can help patients that may have no transportation to get to the Center to receive their treatments. The additional money from this grant will help with programming for our women who have minimal support at home,” said Cathy McCarthy, Oncology Licensed Clinical Social Worker at L+M Cancer Center.
