Boating and Beach Bash Thank You

The Boating & Beach Bash for People with Disabilities was an incredible and heartwarming event that we are proud to have the honor of being the Title Sponsor of. The thrill of a boat ride, the dancing in the rain, and the interactions with Superheros left joy on the faces on not only the attendees, but the volunteers, exhibitors, and caregivers.  A special thank you for the outpouring of support from the community to make this event possible.
