Thank you for participating in the Block Island Race Week Raffle. Because of you, we will donate proceeds to:
- The Block Island Rescue Squad – they have been called into action for one reason or another by virtually every BIRW.
- The Block Island Medical Center – they have patched-up more injured sailors over the years that can be remembered.
The Storm Trysail Club is very thankful for the relationship it has with Block Island residents and businesses. “Block Island has been a wonderful host for race week for 50 years, and through the raffle we can give back to the community that gives our regatta such a fantastic setting,” said Event Chairman Peter Rugg. Through the years the Race Week Raffle has raised more than $100,000 in island donations.
