About Our Auction

"We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails" - Unknown

Welcome to our annual Vanderleek Cup auction...with a socially distant twist! This year we must adjust our sails as we navigate the waters of social distancing. Instead of gathering at Yacht Basin Marina to bid on all these amazing items, the bidding is taking place from the comfort of your own home!

Auction bidding will begin Sunday, August 9 at 3:00 p.m. ET and will close on Sunday, August 16 at 12:00 p.m. ET

Click the "Register Now" button above to sign up.


For the past 13 years, the VanderLeek Cup Hospice Regatta has been so very important to the continuation of Hospice of Holland's mission. We need your help now more than ever as we continue to do everything possible to maintain daily operations and provide services essential to our community. In addition to participating in our online auction, we ask you to consider donating directly to Hospice of Holland by following the link below. Your donation will go far to offset lost revenue due to the unavoidable "adjustment" of this beloved event.

We hope for fair winds next year so we can return to boating, dining, and dancing for extraordinary end-of-life care!
