Fort Lauderdale, FL - The Marine Industry Cares Foundation’s 4th annual Spin-a-Thon held at Esplanade Park on April 20th was a great success, raising approximately $150,000 for the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center and Kids in Distress. Sixty teams kept their spin bikes moving non-stop for the six-hour event. Mayor Jack Seiler of Fort Lauderdale and Senator Nan Rich kicked off the event, while DJ TJ and spin instructors from local gyms donated their time and energy, leading the crowd of eager fundraisers. Major sponsors included IMG (International Medical Group) and HCC Medical Insurance Services.
At 5 o’clock pm, the networking party began, with food and drinks donated by local restaurants Delaware Chicken Farm, Le Macaron, Magner’s, Slackers, and Waxy O’Connors. A raffle and silent auction closed out the day-long event of fun and philanthropy. The Marine Industry Cares Foundation mobilizes the generous spirit of the maritime community to benefit children and families in need. Founded in 2010 by marine industry leaders in South Florida motivated to make a difference in their city, the foundation seeks to build a lasting relationship between the marine industry and the local community.
