IGY Marinas have successfully implemented their first annual “Inspire Giving through You” initiative. The worldwide community service project occurred simultaneously across six countries with over 300 volunteers from eight participating IGY Marinas locations.
The IGY team, captains, crew, owners and local volunteers came together on behalf of local communities that surround their marinas. Volunteers provided hands-on restorations including; cleaning, painting, construction, installations, and basic repairs for seven different non-profits.
In appreciation to all participating volunteers, Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas, stated, “The success of this outreach was derived from the collaborated efforts of our volunteers and the dedication of our staff members. Their perseverance and enthusiasm resulted in making a tangible impact in each of the communities. Their generosity has hopefully inspired others in the yachting community and beyond to spend time with friends and colleagues to give back. We look forward to significantly expanding these efforts in seasons to come.”
IGY will host another “Inspire Giving through You” event on June 11th, 2016. This event will incorporate the remaining marinas in the United States and Panama, as well as the each of the IGY Marinas executive office locations in New York, South Carolina, Florida, and the United Kingdom.
