LYRA 2013 – Thinking Out of the Box
April 28th, 2013 @ 09:31 AM EST by admin

Things are moving along famously in the planning and organization of LYRA 2013. It is going to be a great event!  To date we have Redpath Sugar as our key sponsor.  Hats off to them!  Other sponsors include Hogtown Brewery, Xerox, Blair + Adrian Wealth Advisory, Evolution Sails, Dynamic Mutual Funds, Porter Airlines and there are many more in the works.

We are asking members to Think Out of the Box to help us in the search for more sponsors. If you can think of businesses or companies that may not necessarily be related to sailing or boating but would like to be represented at a prestigious event here in Toronto, we would like to offer them the opportunity.  Some sponsors are happy to offer money; others prefer to offer gifts in kind.

To that end we are going to have a live auction night at the club in May to auction off some great prizes and generate money for the regatta. All of the money raised goes to making sure that YOU have the best time possible and that the cost per individual is kept to a minimum. If you can think of someone that would like to become a sponsor, send us their name and contact info and we will give them a call. In the meantime, watch the LYRA website www.lyra2013.com for updates.
