Danny Sorochan Junior Sailing Fund

Danny Sorochan Junior Sailing Fund

Danny Sorochan is one the Founding Members of the Wabamun Sailing Club (WSC).  Dan was a strong supporter of junior sailing and in 1964 became the Northern Alberta Junior Sailing Coordinator.  In 1964 he also started the Thanksgiving Regatta and turkey dinner and for many years served hot Gluhwein at the event.  In 1990 Dan established the Dan Sorochan Junior Sailors Endowment Fund to which he donated frequently over the years.  The Danny Sorochan Junior Sailing Fund supports the development and enhancement of junior sailing programs at WSC.  Fund proceeds will be directed to junior sail training and programs.  As the fund grows, there will be opportunities for funding for junior sailors to travel to competitions locally, provincially, nationally and internationally, as well as other junior sailing events.

WSC, together with family, friends and colleagues of Danny Sorochan, have now established this permanently endowed fund at the Edmonton Community Foundation.  Additional support is very welcome.  Donations to the fund receive a receipt for tax purposes.
