Hall of Fame Marina Giving Back
For the past 12 years, Hall of Fame Marina in Fort Lauderdale, FL has developed a close partnership with New River Middle School as a way of giving back to the local community. To date, over $25,000 has been raised through donations and sponsorships for the school’s “Marine Science Magnate Program” that teaches students the importance of marine life and caring for the marine environment. This money has been used for various environmental projects and field trips and the school has also started an aquarium club and other enhanced programs for the students.
On February 16, 2014, Hall of Fame Marina participated in the 5th annual A1A Fun Walk/Run Half Marathon and 30+ boaters, employees, teachers, and staff ran as part of “Team Westrec”. All donations raised were in turn donated to New River Middle School on behalf of the marina.
From the school, “[Hall of Fame Marina has] supported our school through various fundraising events, mentoring activities, field trips, and overall community involvement in the school. Scott Salomon, Marina Manager at Hall of Fame Marina, has given countless hours to support NRMS, the Marine Science Magnate Program, and our students. This event is just another example of the community involvement at NRMS and the impact our Partners in Education have on our students education.”
Westrec Marinas is thrilled to continue to be a part of the community in Fort Lauderdale and we look forward to the next A1A Walk/Run Half Marathon!
