Lifetime SEA member, and former President, John Paul Watts has once again challenged us with a scholarship donation match.
JP has put up $300 in a match donation. In other words, he will match any donation to his scholarship fund up to $300!
The John Paul Watts scholarship fund was originally started with a $1000 match, which was met by our members. The fund is specifically for children from Camp SEA Stars or Camp Bahia, our two camps for underserved children from Marin City and the Canal District of San Rafael. Those camps are one week, half day. The camps are supported by Ca State Division of Boating and Waterways.
However, if one of those children is really turned on to sailing and would like to go to the 2 week Sail Camp, they cannot afford it. This is where John Paul has stepped in. His fund is specifically for those children to attend the 2 week Sail Camp!
So, as we slide into the "season of giving", we are looking for folks who will help us meet the match so we can get all of JP's money! Meg will put up a special tab on the "Donations" section of the website. Anything is welcome, it all goes towards the fund. You can only afford $10? That's fine! It means $20 with the match!
Thank you, John Paul! And, the children thank you too.
