San Francisco, September 20, 2018 – My Yacht® Group returns to host its 3rd consecutive charity reception aboard Presidential Yacht, USS Potomac, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 165-foot “Floating White House”, during San Francisco Fleet Week, the nation’s largest and most significant celebration of America’s Sea Services.
The evening reception will welcome international and Bay area HNW guests of My Yacht and lead partner Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors AG (VSWA) aboard the historic vessel for a fireworks cruise of San Francisco Bay, including the Bay and Golden Gate Bridges, and Alcatraz. With Swiss quality and a Swiss outlook, VSWA specializes in globally diversified, SEC-compliant wealth management for North American clients.
On board, Blue Angels team leaders will address guests and highlight the important work being done by the Blue Angels Foundation, MYG’s chosen charity partner for the event once again. More than 20 veterans commit suicide each day, and $5,000 can literally save a veteran’s life through a 30-day, drug-free PTSD treatment protocol.
BAF’s mission is to help each wounded veteran it supports track towards & attain a purpose-driven life in the civilian sector that has a generational impact (through impacting a marriage, improving relationships with kids, other family members, passing down a normal childhood to their kids, & more). Its aim is to donate 100% of donations received towards the cause. On board donations as well as a portion of proceeds from ticket sales and a silent auction will benefit the charity. Direct donations can be made here.
The event marks the beginning of a new partnership with the Bespoke Collection, that offers a curated selection of boutique wines, one-of-a-kind objects d’art, and unique lifestyle experiences in the Napa Valley, Argentina, and beyond. Led by Founder Michael Polenske and President Paul Leary, the current Bespoke Collection portfolio includes Blackbird Vineyards and ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens in the Napa Valley, ÆRENA Wines in Northern California and Recuerdo Wines in Mendoza, Argentina.
Wines to be poured aboard will include 2015 Blackbird Vineyards 93 pts “Arise” and 94 pts “Illustration” Proprietary Reds, plus 2017 Aerena’s Rosé (95 pts) and Chardonnay.
The evening will once again be both entertaining and educational as docents take guests on tours of the austere yacht including FDR’s private quarters, plus guest rooms where HM King George VI and Queen Elizabeth rested during a 1939 visit.
