Dear Parents, Rowers, Family and Friends of Everett Rowing!
The ERA Auction Gala is our biggest fundraiser of the year. The Auction reduces the overall costs to club members, supports our equipment needs – and is a lot of fun!
It will take place on Saturday, March 11, 2017, and will be held at the Edward D. Hanson Conference Center at Xfinity Arena in Everett.
This fundraiser helps to support our mission of providing the premier rowing experience for youths and adults in the greater Everett area. Proceeds from this event will be used to expand and enhance our existing programs, increase our endowment, and bring new equipment to the shell house.
What we contribute makes an impact on our athletes, not only for a practice, or a season, but for their lifetime. Our support is meaningful, it is appreciated and it ultimately rewards us. We cannot emphasize enough how many small contributions contribute to the entire success of our event, and our organization as a whole.
Please help Everett Rowing continue to offer great programs, at exceptional value to as many people as possible!
Four ways YOU can help:
The Auction meets 3 critical components of our financial health.
Operating Budget: The auction subsidizes every athlete’s rowing by approximately $250 each year. This helps us maintain fees of at least $150 less than the average of all rowing clubs in the region.
Equipment: We are entering the 3rd year of a revitalization plan to turn over our oldest, most used shells so our athletes have the best available equipment.
Financial Aid: Everett Rowing is committed to a need-based financial aid program. We have increased our endowment by $23,000 in two years, and met the needs of each qualifying aid request.
The past Auctions have had the following impacts on the club:
2011: Funded the purchase of the "Micki and Glenn Engel", which won a regional championship with the Varsity Men in 2011 and was raced at the Youth National Championships in 2011 and 2012.2010: Funded the purchase of the "Hazel and Tom Eckstrom", which has been raced at the Youth National Championships 3 times.
