Share Article

The 4th annual Yacht Blast for Kids event will take place this Saturday, August 18, 2012 at McKinley Marina in Milwaukee, WI. Yacht Blast for Kids is a non-profit organization that has partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin and 30 boat owners to provide Wish Kids and their families with 90 minute boat rides on Lake Michigan. Tickets are still available and donations are still being accepted for this charity event.

Yacht Blast for Kids

Yacht Blast for Kids was founded by Glenn Kennedy of InPro Corporation in 2009. Kennedy always had a love of boating and after giving a family with a sick child a boat ride in Florida, he decided to pair his boating enthusiasm with his passion for charity work. Since their start in 2009, Yacht Blast for Kids has grown. The event was able to raise $74,747 in 2011 for donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin. The organization is hoping to top that number in 2012.

Yacht Blast for Kids has expanded into several other events throughout the day. Following the boat ride, all are welcome to participate in the Classics for Kids, a classic and exotic car show; Riding for Wishes, a motorcycle fun run; and Sailing For Wishes, a sailboat race. Live entertainment, dinner and a silent auction fundraiser will also take place at the after party on Saturday evening at the Milwaukee Yacht Club. All proceeds of the day’s events will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin.

Many members of InPro Corporation have generously volunteered time and money over the years to organize and sponsor the Yacht Blast for Kids events. 2012 will be no different as InPro Corporation sponsors the evening party at the Milwaukee Yacht Club.

Companies can get involved by sponsoring this event. BlueBolt Solutions, a web development agency and partner of InPro Corporation, is one of many organizations sponsoring the boats at the Yacht Blast for Kids event. Sponsors will have their names displayed on the boats during the event. Sponsorship donations are still being accepted.
