2nd Annual San Francisco Fleet Week Reception Aboard USS Potomac with Vontobel, BDA, AXR Winery, Perrier-Jouët & Rebecca Creek Distillery Benefitting the Blue Angels Foundation

San Francisco, October 9, 2017 – My Yacht® Group returned to host its 2nd 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.

All partnerships were brokered by CEO and Founder of Entertainment Marketplace, LLC, Nicholas Frankl. Says Frankl, “We are delighted to see this become an annual event, with both long term and new partners aboard, and to continue to give back by raising funds and awareness for such an important cause like The Blue Angels Foundation.”

With celebratory fireworks illuminating the city and setting the tone, the evening reception saw international and Bay area HNW guests of My Yacht and lead partner Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors AG cruising San Francisco Bay aboard the historic vessel that afforded spectacular views of the city, Bay Bridge, and Alcatraz.

In addition, Bermuda Business Development Agency joined the event for the first time with local and Bermudian guests in attendance.

On board, two former Blue Angels team leaders chatted with guests about the important work being done by the Blue Angels Foundation, MYG’s chosen charity partner for the event once again. 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 will benefit the charity.

Fine foods were complimented by Perrier Jouët Grand Brut champagne, while AXR Winery – with its founders aboard – poured the 2013 AXR Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, plus its 2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, that proved rather popular! Dark ‘n’ Stormy Gosling’s cocktails, plus Rebecca Creek Whiskey and Enchanted Rock Premium and Peach Vodkas kept the mood festive, while The Justin Rock Band played a smooth selection of jazz and standards on the top deck.

The evening proved both entertaining and educational as docents took 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.
