April 22, 2017
City Flats Hotel, Holland

The official 2017 season will begin on the top floor of the City Flats Hotel with panoramic views of downtown Holland and Lake Macatawa. The bar will open at 6:30pm, and the Annual Business Meeting will begin at 7:00pm. Covering the inner-workings of the club, financial matters, upcoming events, and much more, this is a great opportunity for club members to become informed on what's going on.  The meeting will conclude with a presentation by the Make-a-Wish Foundation as thanks for the club's dedication to charity. 

The kick-off party will follow at 8pm. An hors d'oeuvres dinner will be served, good music played, and various raffles and prizes will be given. This is the first official event of the 2017 season, and it's one you won't want to miss.  Also, City Flats is giving 10% off rooms that weekend to all WMO members. 

Although all WMO functions are members-only, this event is free and open to the public. 

Give to the Make-a-Wish Foundation: WMO Fundraiser April 2017!

WMO has launched its first major fundraising initiative of the year, which will culminate in a presentation by a representative from the Make-a-Wish Foundation at our April 22 business meeting. 

The only way this campaign will be a success is if YOU participate! The board's goal is to raise $5,000 from the members, and another $5,000 will be donated from the club's funds. This could potentially give TWO wishes to kids fighting life-threatening illnesses.

Charitable giving is much more important than offshore powerboating itself, and we can't wait to see the life-changing impact our combined efforts create. 

To encourage giving, the following donor levels have been established and will be recognized via club email, on Facebook, on the club website, and at our April 22 business meeting. 

Benefactor: $300+
Supporter: $100-$299
Friend: $1-$99

Of course, you're more than welcome to remain anonymous if you'd like and all donations count, no matter the dollar amount. 

Please consider participating in this lifechanging campaign!
