Leukemia Cup RegattaThe Leukemia Cup Regatta is an iconic charity regatta that’s kicking off its yearly campaign at the Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle with a cocktail reception on April 6. Good times are the goal of the event, and revelers will be
able to meet current and past participants to get an early start for their own fundraising efforts for the actual regatta, scheduled on Saturday, June 10.

For the uninitiated, Leukemia Cup Regatta participants raise money to fund research to fight the deadly diseases in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The 2017 Leukemia Cup Regatta will be held in memory of Doug Hicks and Gary Wood who were both accomplished sailors and beloved in the community.
