Savannah Yacht Club holds sailing Regatta to held fight blood cancer

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah Yacht Club held a sailing Regatta, along with tennis and golf tournaments, to help raise money for a good cause.

Each year, local residents head out on the water to be a part of the Leukemia Cup Regatta, which is held in cities all over the country in an effort to help fight blood cancers.

"Savannah is a very, very giving community. I mean, we compete in the Leukemia Cup with 27 other venues around the country. You're talking about Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. We have come in first a number of years, second, or third," said volunteer, Henry Minis.

All the money raised will go to fund lifesaving blood cancer research around the world.
