Avow Hospice Regatta Shore Party

The 9th annual Avow Hospice Regatta weekend concluded with an amazing Shore Party and Awards Ceremony held at Marco Island Yacht Club, on Sunday. The evening opened with cocktails and dozens of exquisite silent auction items up for bid, followed by a “Welcome Aboard” speech by Avow President & CEO, Karen Rollins. Special guest speaker, Jean Klutz, President of National Hospice Regatta Alliance, congratulated the teams and all involved on an outstanding participation in this year’s event as well as their support and contributions. Following a brief invocation, guests lined up to feast on the perfectly prepared, delicious buffet-style dinner which included penne alfredo with broccoli, chicken fontina, grilled salmon sliders and a medley of grilled vegetables. The evening concluded with an awards presentation to individuals and teams for their outstanding performance in both the Regatta as well as their fundraising efforts in support of Avow Hospice.
