Our Annual ‘Big Row’ Fundraiser
2020 Big Row is on Saturday 1st February.
The Big Row is our own unique annual fundraising event, where members from the club row a surf boat across the Gulf of St Vincent, from Stansbury on the Yorke Peninsula to Henley Beach. The distance is 68km and several boat crews take turns to row the whole distance in around 8 hours. The inaugural event was held in 2007 and we recently held our 11th event.
In addition to fundraising for the maintenance of our new club-rooms, we need to raise around $40,000 per year to ensure we are meeting our patrol and lifesaving community service obligations by ensuring we have patrols on the beach throughout the summer months. All of these funds are raised by our membership and donated by our sponsors and supporters. All forms of support (including in-kind) are greatly appreciated.
