Many help sailing fundraising a success | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Many thanks to the Bainbridge Island residents and visitors who made the Friends of Bainbridge Island High School Sailing’s inaugural Build-Your-Own Sailboat booth at the Fourth of July Street Fair such a resounding success!

With this popular hands-on activity, we raised more than $5,000 toward our substantial fundraising campaign to replace the BHS Sailing Team’s aging fleet of Flying Junior competition sailboats.

We gratefully acknowledge the contributions of the following local businesses, without whose support this community fundraising effort would not have been possible: Preston Michaels and the students of his BHS Advanced Woodshop Class; Home Depot of Poulsbo; Island Canvas Works; Pro-Build of Bainbridge Island; Port Madison Yacht Club; and Port Townsend Sails.
