Halloween is just around the corner, and with that comes Liberty Yacht Club’s first ever fundraiser, Boatbusters organized by Captain Nitzan Levy, Founder of Sailors Jersey City, along with the local boating community benefitting Jersey Cities homeless population.
Money donations from the fundraiser will be made through a go-fund-me campaign Sailors & Seniors Helping Jersey City Homeless started by Michele Wiemer and Barry Richards, who are boat owners in Liberty Landing Marina. In addition to money fundraising, they are also looking to collect coats and food items for this same grassroots effort.
The event, presented by Liberty Yacht Club, will take place on Halloween Day, Saturday 10/31/2020 and the schedule is as follows:
- 10:00am -10:45am – a Halloween Boat Parade along the Morris Canal
- 10:45am-12:45pm – Sailboat race in the NY Harbor
- 1-3pm – Trick or Treat on marina’s docks – fundraising for the above cause.
In order to prevent the spread of covid-19 we instruct participants to team up with groups of up to 6 people max on each dock, maintain a social distance and wear masks (not just Halloween masks.
