Corn Hill Navigation to Benefit from Day of Giving with Classic Harbor Line on July 13th

June 30, 2023

Corn Hill Navigation is thrilled to announce a fundraiser with Classic Harbor Line to support the work that Corn Hill Navigation is doing in upstate NY. Corn Hill Waterfront and Navigation Foundation is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1991. It operates two vessels, Riverie on the Genesee River in Downtown Rochester, NY and Sam Patch on the Erie Canal in Pittsford, NY.

Riverie was built by Scarano Boat Building in 2022, the same upstate-NY company that built Schooner Adirondack, Schooner America 2.0, Yacht Kingston, Manhattan I and II, and most of the boats in Classic Harbor Line's fleet across their 4 locations.

Riverie, the only tour boat on the Genesee River in Downtown Rochester, was launched in early June 2023, and has already taken out almost 500 Rochester City 5th Graders to engage in citizens science on the Genesee River and Erie Canal, the two waterways that are critical to the history and development of Rochester. These trips are completely funded through generous donations. Corn Hill Navigation hopes to expand this program to every 5th grader in the Rochester City School District and we need your help to make that happen.

To support their efforts and help Rochester 5th graders experience NY waterways, purchase a Classic Harbor Line gift card at any one of their locations on July 13, and they will do a dollar-for-dollar donation to Corn Hill Navigation for 100% of the value of the gift card.

Classic Harbor Line is a premier maritime company dedicated to providing unforgettable cruise experiences in multiple locations.
