About this event


Attention: Due to Hurricane Florence, the Savannah Leukemia Cup Dinner has been rescheduled to November 9, and the Tennis Tournament has been rescheduled to November 10-11, 2018.  

The Savannah Leukemia Cup Regatta is celebrating its 22nd anniversary in 2018! The Leukemia Cup is an opportunity to make cures happen while enjoying what you love. The Leukemia Cup Weekend of Events evolved as part of the Leukemia Cup Regatta after the Olympics came to Savannah in 1996. Since 1997, members of the Savannah Yacht Club and the Leukemia Cup Executive Committee have worked tirelessly to expand the Leukemia Cup to a community-wide series of premier sporting events to help fight leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers.



Registration for the 2018 Leukemia Cup Regatta is LIVE!

Meet the 2018 Leukemia Cup Regatta Executive Chairman, Bill Verner!


Bill has just finished up his term as the Commodore of our gracious host venue, the Savannah Yacht Club, and now sits on the 2018 Board of Stewards as the Past Commodore. We are thrilled to have him on board for our 2018 Leukemia Cup Regatta!


A big thank you to all of our 2018 Executive Committee members. Each of these committee members is in charge of their own subcommittee and event or specialty and are long-standing members of the Savannah community. They have all made numerous contributions to the Leukemia Cup Regatta as well as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! We are so thankful for all of the hard work from these individuals, and know that the Savannah Leukemia Cup Regatta wouldn't be as successful without them.
