America's Cup YachtHere is your chance.

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is proud to be taking part in Massachusetts General Hospital’s America’s Cup Experience on June 24, 2008. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund co-Founder, Phyllis Rappaport, will be captaining one of the boats and would like to invite you to join her as a crew member! She will have the assistance of a professional crew so participants can do as little or as much as they want.

This unique day in Newport, RI couples the excitement of America’s Cup racing with supporting research at Massachusetts General Hospital. The Hospital and four of its President Council Directors will be hosting the event that includes lunch on the New York Yacht Club veranda, an afternoon of racing featuring ten of America’s Cup’s most famous yachts, and then back to the Club for cocktails, a clam bake and a brief, silent auction of premium items.

There are however only 9 crew opportunities and a few spots on the spectator boat, so please act quickly to reserve your place. Each crew member (or spectator) will be asked for a $2500 donation to Cure Alzheimer’s Fund to support cutting edge research at Massachusetts General Hospital.

More information about the America’s Cup Experience and Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is available at their respective websites; www.mghamericascup.org and curealz.org.
