The Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA), International Superyacht Society (ISS) and Ft. Lauderdale Mariners Club (FTLMC) have joined hands to support a worthy cause by presenting a fundraising event that also will serve as the official kickoff to Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show.
Dubbed “I’ve Got a Caribbean Soul”, the party will be held Wednesday, 16 February 2011, from 6:00-9:00 p.m., at the Show Management tent on Cocktail Barge #1 in the 4700 block of Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida.
A limited number of event tickets are available and can be purchased for just $30. Event sponsorship is also available. Proceeds benefit Shake-A-Leg Miami, a charitable organization that teaches the disabled to overcome their handicaps by learning and engaging in the rewarding discipline of sailing.
“This event helps Shake-A-Leg Miami continue its fine work of helping children and adults overcome their physical, developmental and economic challenges,” says Harry Horgan, Founder and President, of Shake-A-Leg Miami. “We deeply appreciate the organizations who are bringing together the marine industry to support us. We also understand that the planners are expecting the event to serve as the annual kick-off of the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show. We look forward to this continuing partnership.”
Sponsors to date include Show Management, Triton Newspaper, Yachting Experts, Inc., Professional Captain’s Services, SEA Marine Investigative Services, and Falvey Yacht Insurance Program. “I’ve Got A Caribbean Soul” will feature live music, drinks and appetizers.
