A boathouse in Fairbanks Park will allow the Wabash Valley Crew to host regattas on the Wabash River. A single regatta can be expected to draw roughly 1,400 athletes and 6,000 spectators, including approximately 1,800 out-of-town visitors. An estimated 50% of out-of-town spectators will stay overnight in our community. Each event can be expected to generate $500,000 in spending at local restaurants, hotels, and shops. Donate today to help us build a boathouse and promote the local economy. For a limited time, every gift is matched by a Wabash Community Foundation grant, up to $150,000.
