The Ephraim Yacht Club is happy to announce the eighth annual EYC Aaron R. Moore Sailing Scholarship Fundraiser.
This Fund finances sailing lesson scholarships at the Ephraim Yacht Club for junior sailors ages 7 and up who are year-round residents of Door County, WI, and who otherwise would not be able to afford sailing lessons. Aaron was a lifelong sailor and an enthusiastic sailing instructor; he recognized the many important life lessons that children learn through sailing, such as leadership, sportsmanship, self-reliance and responsibility. This Scholarship Fund allows Door County children to take part in this learning experience and enjoy the growth and satisfaction that come from learning the sport. In its first seven years, the fund was able to provide over 200 scholarships to the children of Door County. We hope to be able to continue at this pace. Generous donors like you made the funding for these scholarships possible.
The eighth annual Aaron R. Moore Scholarship Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at Northern Haus in Sister Bay 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm.
