IYC Charity Cup

About the 2022 IYC Charity Cup  

The Isles Yacht Club (IYC) Charity Cup is a series of exciting activities to raise money to help our local community. These events involve the largest participation of our 900 members over any other event in the year. Since 2003, we have raised over $600,000 for charity. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit Valerie's House, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity, and scholarships for local high school students. 

Let's Make a Difference!  

In Charlotte County, there are more than 4000 children who have experienced the death of a loved one. Fortunately, there is a special place where they can connect with other children who have suffered the same loss and receive grief counseling. That place is Valerie's House, where there are two Charlotte County locations at local churches. Their goal is to purchase a "house" in Charlotte County to offer their free services. Our IYC Charity Cup will help fund this project. 
Affordable housing is a real problem in our area. Thankfully, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity, a Christan based organization, partners with low-income families to provide safe, decent, affordable home ownership. Since 1987, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity has helped over 478 Charlotte County families achieve the dream of home ownership. Our IYC Charity Cup proceeds will help build a home, right here in our community for a family in need. 

Members of our Club will partner with Charlotte Community Foundation to award scholarships to local students who are studying in the areas of hospitality, culinary and club management.
