 About RAINE & the Keyport Yacht Club Bill Volk Regatta


About The RAINE Foundation


RAINE (Reaching All In Need Everyday) is a 501(c) (3) organization established in 2001 to assist children and families who are in crisis. Since its beginnings, RAINE has positively impacted our communities by providing food, clothing, and assistance during the holidays, along with other various necessities for families in crisis throughout the year. The RAINE team consists of compassionate, caring volunteers striving to make a difference in the lives of others.


In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, RAINE's reach and resources were extended to include the entire New Jersey shore area. In the days and weeks following Superstorm Sandy, RAINE was able to organize their "army of volunteers" to provide food, clothing, and other assistance to those affected, including serving over 20,000 meals per day to victims and first responders. 



About the Keyport Yacht Club Bill Volk Regatta


The Keyport Yacht Club hosted its first annual Bill Volk Memorial Regatta in 1994 to honor longtime club member, William Volk, Sr. who served as a trustee and chairman of the race committee and significantly upgraded the club’s race program. On June 8, 2001, the club held its first Regatta to benefit a charity to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Now in its 17th year, the Regatta has been held every June as an annual fundraising event. The first “Sailing for the Bayshore” campaign was created in the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and held in June 2013 to directly help those struggling to recover from the storm. This year will be the 5th year that the Bill Volk Regatta will benefit the RAINE Foundation.
