The second annual Marine Industry Cares Foundation Chairman’s Gala will take place Saturday, January 28 in Dania Beach, Florida.
As a fundraiser that supports the Marine Industry Cares Foundation and programs like the Marine Industry Immersion Summer Camps and the MICF Youth Creative Arts Contest, the evening will be a night for South Florida’s marine industry and the broader community to come together in support of children and families in need. Additionally, the MICF Chairman’s Gala will serve to honor the 2017 Class of MICF Chairman Honorees. These are outstanding individuals or organizations who are named for their contributions to the Foundation and/or the community.
“Our inaugural Gala earlier this year offered a great start to 2016,” said David Reed, Chairman, “and we look forward to next year’s Gala really serving as a strong fundraiser and kickoff to a year of continued growth and positive impact for children and families in our community.”
The MICF Marine Immersion Summer Camp was started in 2015 as a two-week program introducing high school students to the marine industry through field trips to local businesses, camp visits by industry professionals, and hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) projects. The projects included a boat propeller design and race challenge and a ROV build challenge run under the guidance of both industry professionals and local engineering teachers.
