Celebrate the 34th annual America’s Cup races aboard Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidential yacht, U.S.S. Potomac, with Yacht Aid’s Cruise for a Cause on September 6.

Guests will enjoy views of the San Francisco bay, cocktails, an exquisite meal, live music from the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra aboard the glamorous jazz-age yacht, and all for a great cause: Yacht Aid Global’s humanitarian efforts. Elite Traveler is proud to sponsor this elegant event for such a worthy charity.

All proceeds from this event will go toward YachtAid Global operations as it coordinates a network of yachts to deliver aid such as school supplies, medical equipment and disaster relief to schools, medical clinics, cultural centers and other organizations in need—many of which other aid organizations cannot reach due to their remote and isolated locations.

Since 2006, YachtAid Global has made over 50 deliveries totaling over $300,000 and has benefited the lives of over 15,000 people. In the past year, YachtAid Global has made deliveries to Fiji, Galapagos Islands, Robinson Crusoe Island and Isles Secas off the coast of Panama. Approximately 12 more deliveries are scheduled for the remainder of 2013 and the beginning of 2014.
