National Marine raises almost $50,000 for breast cancer charity

ADVERTISEMENT

Fort Lauderdale-based provisioning company National Marine Suppliers recently presented a check in the amount of $49,149.15 to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation.

The money was raised through the company’s fundraising events, including a rainy day poker run prior to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and a toned-down gala dinner during the show. NMS replaced its legendary party with the invitation-only, ticketed dinner in 2017 in the hopes of more efficiently raising money for the charity despite a fraction of the guests. Last year, the check presented was for just over $80,000.

With this year’s check, the yachting industry has raised through NMS events nearly $300,000 for the charity.
