About this event

Congratulations to The New Jersey Leukemia Cup Regatta Committee for their 2020 Chairman’s Award!

We are proud to announce that The New Jersey Leukemia Cup Regatta Committee, Dan Dagit, Tim Dagit, Scott Foxman, and Lisa Thorndike, are the recipients of The 2020 New Jersey Chairman’s Award.

This award is presented to an individual, group of individuals, or a corporation that has displayed a steadfast commitment and revenue impact for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that far extends beyond the scope of what is typical to elevate the success of an event, initiative, or campaign.

Under Dan’s leadership, the event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through their annual Leukemia Cup Regatta hosted at the Ocean City Yacht Club.

Unfortunately, this year’s regatta was cancelled due to the pandemic. In spite of this, Dan and his team remained committed to the mission of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and continued to raise critical funds to support our mission in 2020.

Thank you to Dan, Tim, Scott, and Lisa for their passion, dedication, and work to create a world without blood cancers!

The New Jersey Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

A message from Dan Dagit, New Jersey Leukemia Cup Regatta Chair:

We hope that you are all well and surviving the Coronavirus situation.  

Given the state of the world and the difficulties presented by the Virus we have decided to cancel the 2020 Ocean City Yacht Club Leukemia Cup. The reasons for doing so are: 

  • With the restrictions on group gatherings and social distancing we believe that it is unrealistic to plan for a large gathering at OCYC in July.
  • It is too much to ask of committee members to “lean in” with a 100% commitment when we are ALL dealing with personal and professional challenges posed by the virus.
  • While several other Leukemia Cups are being postponed to the Fall, Ocean City is seasonal, with the window closing on Labor Day. 

We remain committed to the mission of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in their quest to eradicate blood cancers. As such, Scott and I plan to participate in one of the other regatta’s to be held in the Fall. We will assemble an OCYC fundraising team and continue to support the LLS. More to come on that later. 

We will be back in 2021 with a bigger better Leukemia Cup!

Thank you and best to you and yours in getting through this crisis. This too shall pass!

Best Always,

Dan Dagit and Scott Foxman
