The 2018 American Sailing Association/Hands Across the Sea Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes is over and the totals are in:
- Donor/entrants: 549
- Funds raised: USD $41,379.40
Of the six years that ASA has so kindly donated their time, expertise, and energy to the Sweepstakes, this year’s is the best ever: the most entrants, the most money raised for Caribbean kids.
Thank you to our great partners at ASA, Horizon Yacht Charters, and Elite Island Resorts. Your generous support of this endeavour is a stirring example of the way a team effort benefits Caribbean children in a life-changing way.
To every one of the 549 caring folks who donated/entered the ASA/Hands Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes, thank you! You have made this Sweepstakes our most successful ever. Your donation helps pay for the 90,050 new amazing books, literacy support materials, and 35 Remedial Reading Toolkits from Hands that are arriving right now at 117 schools in the islands of Antigua, St. Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada.
We owe a massive amount of thanks to the Sweepstakes sponsors who generously donated the great prizes for a Caribbean vacation adventure: a one-week bareboat charter for four from Horizon Yacht Charters, and two one-week luxury resort stays from Elite Island Resorts. And to the tremendously philanthropic folks at the American Sailing Association (ASA), we salute you: this is the sixth year in a row you have donated your considerable time, effort, and inspiration to run this Sweepstakes to benefit Caribbean children.
We are humbled by this tremendous show of support. Thank you, and we wish every entrant in the Sweepstakes the best of luck in the drawing. We hope to see you in the Caribbean!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ALL.
