As Americans, we were all horrified to watch the destruction of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  As sailors, many of us were further saddened by the carnage to many of our fellow sailors and lovely sailing areas and venues in Florida, the Caribbean and other areas. 

The Chicago Area Sail Racing Association would like to help. 

Beginning immediately, CASRA is organizing an effort to raise money for the American Red Cross in its effort to help rebuild the areas damaged by Irma and Maria.  Please click the "DONATE NOW" button to make your donation.  

While donations of any amount are greatly appreciated, we encourage the following levels: 

• Bronze Level:  $100
• Silver Level:  $250
• Gold Level:  $500
• Platinum Level:  $1,000

Additionally, at the end-of-season CASRA party and awards celebration, CASRA will recognize all Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum level donors and will be donating 100% of the $10.00 entry fee to the American Red Cross. 

Please share this with your crews, families, friends, or anyone else who might be interested in this cause via email, Facebook, and Twitter. As Lake Michigan sailors, we are so blessed to have such a wonderful sailing community.  Let’s help other sailing communities right now who need our help.
