Rowing at Visitation is a Varsity Sport but enjoys a special relationship with the Athletic Department where we manage two yearly fundraisers that provide huge benefit to the Crew. Every rower and crew family is expected to pitch in and help.
Visitation/Gonzaga Freshman Mass and Picnic: Gonzaga Fathers Club and Visitation Fathers Club host this event in early September for incoming freshmen and their families. Crew is responsible for advertising, decorations, ticket sales, coordinating with the priests for Mass, and procuring and preparing food.
Christmas Tree Sale: Visitation Crew Boosters run the sale on our campus over two consecutive weekends in December. This event typically raises over $20k, which has a big impact on our operating budget. It also provides good bonding time for parents and girls and is a fun way to kick off the Christmas season. Every family is expected to participate.
