The Chicago Regatta, hosted by the Chicago Yacht Club, will raise funds for SOS Children’s Villages Illinois and two other charities focused on children. After a full day of boat races of all styles, the event concludes with the Sweet Home Chicago Dock Party at the Chicago Yacht Club’s Monroe Harbor from 4-11pm. This evening event is open to the public, and tickets are $40 each if purchased by noon the day of the event. Tickets will be available for $50 at the door.

This summertime soiree has something for everyone! From the relaxed casual race to the fun-filled poker run, the Chicago Regatta serves to give back to Chicagoland charities while offering exciting water fun for both new and experienced boaters. Visit the Chicago Regatta website to enter one of the races.

After a day on the lake, celebrate with us at Chicago Yacht Club’s Monroe Station and dance along with Chicago’s own Sam Cockrell Band. Not the dancing type? You can peruse the silent action, enjoy a bite to eat and a drink, or simply enjoy the sunset all night long at the Sweet Home Chicago Dock Party. All proceeds will benefit SOS Illinois, The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital, and the Yacht Club Foundation.

All proceeds from both the day and evening events will benefit SOS Illinois, The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital, and the Yacht Club Foundation.

The Chicago Regatta and Sweet Home Chicago Dock Party is sponsored by Wintrust, a longtime friend and supporter of SOS Illinois.
