Hornblower Employees Lead Fleet Week

Wednesday, October 03, 2001
Hornblower Cruises & Events' employees have led a movement among San Francisco's sailing and boating community to celebrate Spirit of Fleet Week in lieu of the cancellation of this weekend's events. Bringing together historic and recreation vessels, a Parade of Ships is planned for October 6 and 7 at 3:00 p.m.

After learning the fate of this year's Fleet Week, Hornblower employees searched for another venue to express their appreciation to America's Armed Forces and raise money for the American Red Cross Relief Fund. Fleet Week charters and cruises will offer military personnel free admission and their family members a 50 percent discount on cruises. Each cruise will feature a tribute to military personnel, and 10 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. Hornblower led the organizing of a Parade of Ships which will include the San Francisco Fire Department fire boat; U.S.S. Potomac, FDR's floating White House; S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien, the last unaltered, operable ship that carried cargo in FDR's famous "bridge of ships" and other recreation and commercial vessels.
