The Wilmette Harbor Club, located north of Chicago on Lake Michigan, includes a clubhouse with both indoor and outdoor dining, a gas dock, and mooring for several hundred boats. Since 1929 the Wilmette harbor's Sheridan Shore Yacht Club has hosted sailboat fleet racing during the summer months. Wilmette harbor is also home to the Sheridan Shore Sailing School for both adults and children.

Sheridan Shore Sailing School 2021 Fundraiser

The Sheridan Shore Sailing School is hosting a 2021 fundraising benefit on June 24th. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to pay for new coaching/safety boats and an enhanced scholarship fund which will help us expand our community outreach. The demand for our programs exploded last season. Current registration is running at a similarly high rate which makes the need urgent.

How you can help:

  • Do you have access to a vacation home, sports tickets or other exciting experiences? Consider donating an item for our silent auction.
  • We are accepting cash donations, highlighting large donors - Bronze $500, Silver $2500, and Gold $5000 - using 3 methods: through our sponsor page on the SSSS website for a full year, on-line presence through our Greater Giving platform as we will run video feeds for a week with our auction items and testimonials, and displayed physically at the in-person June benefit.
  • Attend the event! We are planning to have some in-person guests at the June 24th event, and you can attend virtually as well. Check out our silent auction items before the event.
