Marine industry groups celebrate the holidays for charity

Posted on by in

Five South Florida marine industry groups gathered together for a holiday party last night at the city’s historic Stranahan House on the New River. Members of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, the Marine Industry Cares Foundation, the International Yacht Brokers Association, Young Professionals in Yachting and the U.S. Superyacht Association shared food and drink and donated heaps of unwrapped toys to the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center. The Triton’s own David Reed arrived as Santa, despite the balmy temperatures. PHOTOS/LUCY REED
