2019 PILLAGE 'N THE
$6K BED RACE FUNDRAISER
Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta $6K
Fundraiser hits Main Street Palmyra on Saturday,
August 10 and you’re invited to participate.

This year, we are encouraging you
to run for a cause - yours and ours! This
two-tier fund-raising event will provide support
for not only Historic Palmyra, its five amazing
museums, and monthly programming, but also for
your favorite charity or cause.
Here’s all we ask: Commit to make
an initial donation to Historic Palmyra in the
amount of $250 to claim your vessel. Gather your
five-person crew. Then, direct your family,
friends, neighbors, and everybody else to visit

Once your team/bed's donations have reached
$1000, your cause will earn 50% of every
subsequent donation. In addition, on race day,
the top three finishers will receive a cash
prize, with the first place team scoring a bonus
of 10% of that team's total donations.
For example, if your team raises
$2,000 in donations before race day, then the
first $1000 goes to Historic Palmyra, the second
$1,000 is split 50/50 with Historic Palmyra and
YOUR cause AND if your team finishes first on
race day, you will receive a first place cash
prize, plus 10% of $2,000 - or another $200!
And that's what why call the race
the “$6K Fundraiser” – six
beds, with a goal of $1,000 each, with your
causes' donations increasing with every donation
over and above the $6K goal.
So, what are you waiting for?
