Gala to benefit sailing school

JOHNSBURG – An upcoming 1920s-themed gala at the Pistakee Yacht Club will raise funds for the growing sailing school operated there.

The second annual Gastby Gala is planned for Saturday, July 19, at the century-old yacht club, 3300 N. 3300 N. Rocky Beach Road in Johnsburg.

The evening will start with a student parade on boats at 5 p.m. A cash bar will open and appetizers will be served starting at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is planned for 7 p.m.

There will be a silent auction.

Tickets are $75 a person or $550 for a table of eight.

All proceeds will go to the Community Sailing School @ Pistakee, which wrapped up its first season last year and hopes to expand its offerings. The rebranded sailing school invested in new boats, brought in three paid staff members and successfully put 60-plus students through its classes last year.

To register, send an email to csspistakeefun@gmail.com or call Tom Kartheiser at (815) 307-4466.
