FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Marine Industry Cares Foundation, a new non-profit organization founded by marine industry leaders, will host a fundraising event for a children’s aid organization.
Directors Mole Telfer, David Reed, Sabrina Farmer and Peter Hult officially launch the Marine Industry Cares Foundation with the 3rd Annual Spin-A-Thon, a fundraising event for Kids in Distress (KID) on Friday, May 20, 2011 from 1 to 7 p.m.
“We saw great enthusiasm in the marine industry for helping local causes, which provided us with an opportunity to build a bridge between the maritime community and local charities benefiting children and families,” said Peter Hult, Vice President of MHG Insurance Brokers.
The inaugural Spin-A-Thon and its successor provided abused and neglected children with over $100,000. This year, Marine Industry Cares Foundation says it plans to triple the involvement and raise over $250,000 for KID.
