A regatta raises money for charities in Baltimore each year. This year the sailing regatta benefited Good Shepherd Services Baltimore (GSS). RCM&D is an insurance carrier for GSS. Each year the company gives grants to three charities from money raised through a sailing regatta in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland. The money raised benefits agencies that focus on children and those with disabilities. GSS board member Will Buttarazzi nominated Good Shepherd Services for the grant.

Established in 1864, Good Shepherd Services is a non-profit residential treatment center for adolescents, ages 13 to 21, who are suffering from severe emotional and behavioral problems. Located on 70 wooded acres in Baltimore County, the Center provides therapeutic services and accredited education in a residential and day school setting for students from throughout Maryland.

Good Shepherd Services Baltimore is a ministry of Sisters of the Good Shepherd Province of Mid-North America.
