Changing the way children grow up in Santa Cruz County



2017 Regatta Logo

2017 Regatta was a smashing success!

On August 13th the Santa Cruz Yacht Club & Santa Cruz community helped us raise $69,400!

Thank you Santa Cruz!!  The support was tremendous from: the fantastic sponsors; the business community who donated items for our Silent Auction or raffle; the sailors who paid to take part in the race; Island Breeze who provided the live music and kept us dancing; and Fresh Prep Kitchens who served a delicious dinner.  While it is a cliche, we absolutely could not have done it without any of you.   View the race results and sponsors’ list here.

Matched and Waitlist

Nordic Naturals once again supported the children and youth in our One-to-One Mentoring program by providing them with a school backpack stuffed with supplies. About 60 children were served.  In addition to receiving a backpack, the children had a great afternoon playing games, dressing up in the photo studio, and generally having fun with the Nordic Naturals staff.
