There’s so much happening in Mississauga these days it can be hard to keep track. From the Waterfront Festival to the constant happenings at Celebration Square, there’s no shortage of things to do and fun to be had. However sometimes it’s good to put others first and do a little charity.

Each year, the Toronto Area Hospice Regatta (TAHR) comes to the Port Credit Yacht Club, and it’s happening again on Saturday, June 23. The charity sailing event is a great cause that draws a ton of people each year.

“The TAHR is a charity sailing event with net proceeds going to support a local hospice. The beneficiary of the 2017 TAHR was the Ian Anderson House, located on the Mississauga/Oakville border. The $57,000 we gave to the IAH was the largest amount ever raised by a third party fundraiser in their 20 year history!”

As mentioned in the official excerpt above, the plethora of money raised went towards the Ian Anderson House, and I believe it will be the same this year. The Ian Anderson House is an in-resident cancer hospice, which aims to create comfortable living environments and round-the-clock care for those who cannot get it at home.

So the T.A.H.R takes place at the Port Credit Yacht Club on Saturday. Registration for the event can be completed here. After the sailing is over, everyone will reconvene at the Yacht Club for a BBQ bash! The BBQ is open to everyone, not just members of the Yacht Club or sailers, so tickets can be purchased here. For more information, visit the official website. The Toronto Area Hospice Regatta is an amazing charity event and everyone is encouraged to come to sailing, or come to the BBQ afterwards!
