Fund-raiser delivers coffee to your transom

A Sea Ray dealership in Seattle is kicking off the boating season with a fund-raising drive that offers Starbucks coffee delivery right over the transom of boats in Portage Bay.

Lake Union Sea Ray will be holding a Cup for Kids event on the opening weekend of the boating season April 30 to May 1.

The company along with Starbucks Coffee, Concordia Coffee Systems and Seattle Children's Hospital will be serving espresso drinks transom to transom off a 55-foot Sea Ray yacht to boaters around Portage Bay, Wash. The theme for the celebration will be "Out of this World" and drinks will be available for a minimum donation of $3. All proceeds will go to benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital.

Local radio station KJR-FM will also be joining the party with music, prizes and giveaways. Boaters can pick up their cup of coffee from 2-6 p.m. April 30 and starting at 7 a.m. May 1.
