Nov 5, 2015 6:06 PM -
St. Charles Rowing Club, a nonprofit competitive juniors rowing program for high-school athletes, is selling holiday cards as the first phase of its capital fundraising campaign. The goals are to raise infrastructure development funds to enable the club to move to their new location in Fox River Bluff East, including an access road, parking lot, floating dock and boathouse; and to raise equipment funds to purchase three new Resolute Racing 4-person shells, two new 8-person shells, plus oars and hire additional coaching staff. The average price of one new racing shell is approximately $50,000. If the fundraising campaign is a success, the club plans to move into the new location with its new equipment in late 2016.
