TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The inaugural Tallahassee Cardboard Boat Race will take place at Lake Hall in Maclay Gardens on Saturday, April 30th.
The race is a fundraiser for the newly-established non-profit ‘Warriors Restoration.’ All proceeds of the race will go to help local homeless and at-risk Veterans.
“We didn’t want to do something that everybody else does. So, we came up with a cardboard boat race, which Tallahassee did not have. We have plenty of galas, balls, but we wanted to do something different to really stand out and get our message out to the unique crowd,” said founder Barry Walker.
Each team will be supplied with the building materials. The boats will be judged by appearance and how well they float. The event will also include food and other vendors as well as different Veteran’s organizations. For more information, visit BoatRaceTally.com.
