Paddle for a Purpose

August 27 | @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm

In collaboration with the Cadillac Jaycee’s and Real Estate One, the Sportsman’s Port is hosting Paddle for a Purpose to benefit Coats for Kids. The event will take place August 27, 2022, and will support the purchase of coats by raising funds with a silent auction and partial proceeds from renting watercraft and/or campsites. Online Auction will take place beginning Thursday, August 25th, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to help support by bidding on items provided by local businesses. There will also be a Riverflow Afterglow located in the Campground’s open space with activities, food and refreshments at the end of the day.

In 2021, we raised just over $2,000 with a 50% match from the REO Charitable Foundation and had over 300 children in need, which left us in a difficult position of not being able to fulfill all of the needs. We anticipate the need to be just as great, if not greater, this year. Our goal this year is to raise at least $8,000 to meet these needs and are grateful for the additional 50% match from the REO Charitable Foundation again this year.
