The annual Lakefest Regatta out at Highport Marina is going on this weekend.

In its twenty-one year history, the Regatta has raised more than $1.2 million. Organizers expect to raise $50,000 this year alone.

They say it's not just about the race, it's about the cause.

The Regatta kicks off tonight, and tomorrow morning will be the blessing of the fleet.

The Regatta will last until Sunday.
