The 6th Annual JBT Regatta was an overwhelming success! We were graced with perfect weather and WYC was packed with hundreds of beautiful people to celebrate John and help raise over $106,000 for the Cure Starts Now Foundation!
We finally had some wind … A nice Westerly breeze aided Guy Nickerson and his crew of “Pressure” to defeat 20 other boats and earn the top honor — Great work Guy!
The Party at WYC was immaculate … Almost 300 smiles graced the grounds of WYC to enjoy the music, food, JBT Store, awards, auction and to most importantly, to celebrate the memory of John Bradley Thompson — The most awesome kid that ever was.
This year’s JBT Perseverance Award was presented to Allan Beetle, a fixture in our community who battled & defeated cancer a decade ago and acts as an advocate to others who are facing health or life challenges. His philanthropy & involvement in our community is 2nd to none and we are proud to Honor Allan with the 2019 JBT Perseverance Award.
In the end, it was a perfect day and we are so thankful to everyone who helped out with the event, showed up to party, donated auction items & money for the cause and a huge thanks to the WYC for hosting such a great event … Your support is appreciated.
See you guys next year!
