Rebuilding Together Philadelphia Dragon Boat Team
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2011
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 01, 2011
Rebuilding Together Philadelphia's participation in the Philadelphia Dragon Boat Festival each year provides a chance for volunteers and other supporters to raise funds and awareness for a cause we love. We celebrate the prior year's success and launch the current program year with our friendly competition on festival day – Gung Ho, Red Oar White and Becky's Beauties. These other dragon boat teams not only share party space with RTP on festival day, but also provide volunteer support to homeowners in need throughout the year. In addition to being a fun social event, the Dragon Boat Festival has become our signature fund-raiser. Our participation in the 2010 Festival raised more than $10,000; enough to make repairs to three homes in the spring of 2011.
No experience or even athletic ability is required - the key to success in dragon boat is getting in sync with your team.
