MPT encourages the local South Florida marine industry to join MPT students, staff and faculty members, and to come dressed in their very red best for to enjoy an evening filled with food, fun and friends for a much deserving cause, as guests mix and mingle over drinks and light bites on Bimini’s Waterfront Palm Bar on the Patio overlooking the beautiful Intracoastal waterway, where great marina views abound.

Complimentary light bites will be served and attendees will be treated to a complimentary signature Red Passion cocktail and drink specials throughout the evening, courtesy of Bimini Boatyard. MPT will donate $10 for each student, faculty and staff member, friend and supporter who comes dressed in red, with all proceeds for the evening benefiting the American Heart Association South Florida Chapter.
