PILLAGE 'N THE
BED RACE REGATTA
$6K FUNDRAISER 2018
Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K
Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday,
August 11 and you’re invited to participate.
In prior years, racers were
encouraged to build their own racing beds and
run them on race day. However, under the
direction of race Commodore Captain Mojito, we
built a fleet of six swift schooners, ready to
roll. All you have to do is assemble a five
person crew (16 years of age or older) and be
one of the first six teams to register.
In addition, all entry fees have
been waived, leaving you with no cost – and,
frankly, no excuse not to enter! Seriously, how
many times have you watched the bed races over
the years and said to yourself, “That looks so
cool! I’ve got to get a team together and do
that next year.” Well “next year” is now!
Here’s all we ask. Once you
register your crew, you will be assigned one of
the six beds to run. Then, direct your family,
friends, neighbors, and everybody else to visit
Eventbrite webpage and make a donation in
support of your team. Just open the link labeled
“Tickets” and you’ll find all six beds listed.

All donations will go to support
the important work of our parent organization,
Historic Palmyra, a non-profit education
organization, tasked to preserving Palmyra’s
important architectural and historical legacy,
while operating five amazing museums and
offering special events and historical
programming throughout the year.
This year, we’re calling the race
the “$6K Fundraiser” – here’s why: we have six
beds and we think we should all be able to raise
$1K per team. That’s the goal. And, in addition
to medals for each of the top three finishers
and the names of the winning team enshrined on
the trophy hanging in the Palmyra Village Hall,
the traditional $100 first place prize will be
increased to include 10% your team’s donations.
