The YachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show went out with a bang – we came together with industry professionals to raise a toast to the week and attended the ever popular Marine Resources fiesta!
The now famous party is a charity event for show exhibitors, industry professionals and the sailing and water sports community to let their hair down. This year’s Hawaiian-themed party was a great success, seeing partygoers donning Bart’s Bash yellow shades, Hawaiian flower garlands and dancing with Fusion Aliens that simply got everywhere at this year’s Boat Show!
MDL has always been keen supporters of the charity event and this year was no exception – along with fantastic team attendance, we donated a Surf Snowdonia trip as the main raffle prize, which went to lucky winner Tom Vallence.
Adrien Burnand, Head of Marketing at MDL Marinas, said: “Once again, Marine Resource’s party was a fantastic occasion, bringing together industry professionals to celebrate the success of Southampton Boat Show. As well as unwinding after the efforts of the team, the event helps to raise vital funds for charity and MDL Marinas has been delighted to support the cause.”
Following the party’s success, Marine Resources is very pleased to announce that all the proceeds from the raffle, door money and sponsorship raised £1,500 for their chosen charity; The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
James Ward, Managing Director of Marine Resources said: “I have been holding the party for a good 12 years now and it’s fantastic that year on year it gets bigger and better and raises more and more money for charity. I would like to thank everyone who came along and helped raise so much money for such a great cause!’”
