BKSK Architects sponsors a boat in the Architects Regatta…

…and wins the race!

There is still time to fundraise. Here is our original outreach.

Hello colleagues and friends!

We are only a week away from the Architects Regatta Fundraiser and we are excited to participate again in this one-day sailboat race fundraiser out on the Hudson River.  For many years BKSK has been a leader both on the racecourse and in fundraising thanks to the support of many of our clients and partners.  We hope to continue that performance and are reaching out in seek of your support for this year’s regatta.  This event is near and dear to us as it combines two types of charities so important to BKSK; the marine related charity groups that promote sailing and children’s education on the water such as Hudson River Community Sailing as well as the EB Research Partnership.   Please consider helping us in raising funds to support these important causes.  The money raised in this event is vital for the operations of these groups from year to year.

As you’ll read in the fundraising link, the EB Research Partnership supports a cause that is very important to me.  My daughter was diagnosed at birth with a devastating skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).   At first, as any parent would, I focused on how best to care for her and was frustrated to learn that there was not a single treatment for patients with EB.   However, I quickly learned about the amazing efforts of the EB Research Partnership, who are the largest nonprofit dedicated to raising funds in search of a treatment or cure for EB.   Your support will help fund ongoing clinical trials which hopefully soon lead to a cure for EB!  Elodie has just turned six and is headed to kindergarten this fall.  We hope before she heads to middle school everyone’s support will have led to a cure! To learn more about Elodie and EB follow this link:

Also, if you would like to have some exposure at the event you can be named in two ways.  For companies, organizations, or individuals that donate $2,500 they will be listed in the event brochure as a “friend of the regatta”.  Companies and organizations donating $5,000 will be named an official sponsor in the event brochure and your logo will appear on the sponsor page.  All sponsors are also eligible to race a sailboat in the “Industry Partners” portion of the regatta and attend the post-regatta party.   If you are interested, please feel free to reach out to me to discuss further.

Please consider contributing and any amount is appreciated!  It is easy to do, just follow the link below and click “Donate”.

Thank you for your consideration,
