Ugly sweaters abound at holiday party December 22, 2015

Marine industry revelers decked the hulls with ugly sweaters at the Marine Industry Holiday Party at the Stranahan House.

The party hosted by the U.S. Superyacht Association, Marine Industries Association of South Florida, Florida Yacht Brokers Association and Young Professionals in Yachting. Proceeds benefited the Marine Industry Cares Foundation, and toys that were generously contributed were donated to the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center, which both are working hard to make a difference in our community.

Guests were invited to take a tour of the historic Stranahan House, enjoyed beer, which was provided by Riverside Market, wine and rum punch and were entertained by a performance from the South Florida Symphony.

Door prizes and ugly sweater contest prizes included symphony tickets, a half-day powerboat rental, courtesy of Best Boat Club, tickets to the Stranahan House River Ghost Tour and hotel stays at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, Renaissance Fort Lauderdale and Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort & Spa.

The bars were sponsored by Burr & Forman, and Atlantic Radio Telephone’s Sat Phone Store sponsored the popular photo booth.
