Fundraisers

Yorktown Crew Fundraising

The YHS crew team depends on fundraisers to help cover the cost of equipment, such as oars and shells; boat storage fees; insurance; and other essential items.  Our fundraising activity also helps keep down the costs to individual rowers and their families.

    • The 2020 Holiday Wreath Sale has ended but you can still click on the link below to make a holiday donation to keep Crew afloat: The wreath sale is the largest fundraiser in support of Yorktown Crew.
