4th Annual Boating for Babies Fundraiser by Yankee Boating Center
The Boating for Babies Event at Yankee Boating Center hopes to raise money for The Glens Falls Hospital Joyce Stock Snuggery along with other area charities
Continuing for a fourth year, Yankee Boating Center located on Lake George, NY will hold a fundraising event during the weekend of Saturday, September 21st and Sunday, September 22nd, at their Marina location in Diamond Point, NY.
The event hopes to raise funds for the Glens Falls Hospital Joyce Stock Snuggery along with additional local charities. The event also hopes to bring friends and family together for the weekend to enjoy boating on Lake George during a beautiful Fall day.
Similar to years past, Yankee Boating Center is taking 50% off of their regular boat rental rates for the benefit. Rentals for the weekend start at $96.50 for 2 hours and go up based on boat size and duration of rental. (See rate chart below, gas is additional).
The benefit will start on Saturday morning at 8:30 am through 5:00 pm both days with free coffee and snacks to be provided in the morning for all boat renters. More information on the event can also be found on Yankeeboat.com and BoatingForBabies.com. Yankee Boating Center is currently taking rental boat reservations for the weekend at their rental location at 3910 Lake Shore Dr., Diamond Point, NY; interested renters should call (518) 668-5696.
The Glens Falls Hospital Joyce Stock Snuggery completed a large renovation project in 2018 adding new birthing units and renovated existing birthing suites to provide new families with the comforts of home. The Joyce Stock Snuggery has been the area’s leading family-focused birthing center for nearly 30 years.

- Family Services Association of Glens Falls
