The "AREA 3 ALL STARS" will be participating in the 6th annual Chicago Chiditarod. Please help us raise funds this great cause!!

Dear Friends and Fellow Sailors,

On March 5th, 2011, The "AREA 3 ALL STARS" will be participating in the 6th annual Chicago Chiditarod. If you have never heard of it, the Chiditarod is a mobile food drive that combines elements of Alaska's Iditarod with a costumed race and Chicago's own unique brand of social activism.

The "AREA 3 ALL STARS" is made up of members/friends/family of the local Chicago sailing community. During the summer they battle it out on the water to finish ahead of each other, during the winter they come together to help feed the less fortunate......

The team will be defending their 2009 and 2010 titles: 1st Over All, Most food raised (over 3 tons in 2010), 1st in Sabotage and 1st in Super Bonus Challenge..

Basically, we will be donning ridiculous costumes while pushing a shopping cart filled with canned food down the streets of Chicago.

In short, this is a silly event with a very serious cause. We are trying to raise money for the Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation and we are asking for your support.

Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation's mission is to alleviate hunger in metropolitan Chicago through distribution of high-quality food; education; advocacy; culinary arts and other employment training. They work extremely hard to keep overhead low and amazingly over 90% of donations to the Anti-Hunger Federation are used for programming.

Here is how your tax deductible donation can help:

•A $30 Donation can provide nutritious salads for 100 soup kitchens guests.
•A $50 Donation can furnish fresh fruits and vegetables to 10 families of 4 for a week.
•A $100 Donation can supply a pantry with 400 pounds of fresh produce for a month.

Donating through the GiveForward website is safe, secure and the easiest way to help.

Thank you so much for your generous contribution! It will make a huge difference in someone's life.
