IGY Mari­nas an­nounced ear­lier this week that it will be host­ing its sec­ond an­nual phil­an­thropic ini­tia­tive, In­spire Giv­ing through You, on Fe­bru­ary 25, 2017. The first of two global com­mu­nity out­reach events for the New Year, In­spire Giv­ing through You will once again call upon the hands of IGY Mari­nas’ cor­po­rate staff, ma­rina as­so­ciates, An­chor Club Strate­gic Part­ners, yacht own­ers, cap­tains and crew mem­bers to take part in sup­port­ing the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties where the com­pany op­er­ates.

“IGY Mari­nas is ex­cited to once again team up with mem­bers in our net­work and beyond for a day of giv­ing, in­spir­ing, and hav­ing fun,” said Tom Muka­mal, CEO of IGY Mari­nas. “We re­ceived such tremen­dous sup­port dur­ing our first In­spire Giv­ing through You projects in 2016, wel­com­ing hun­dreds of vol­un­teers in North Amer­ica, Latin Amer­ica and the Caribbean. Our mis­sion for 2017 is to in­spire even more mem­bers in the in­dus­try to join us in giv­ing back to the des­ti­na­tions where we live, work, and travel.”

This cen­tre caters to chil­dren who are vic­tims of se­vere child abuse and ne­glect, ac­com­mo­dat­ing up to twenty-two chil­dren. The Home also in­cludes a Ther­a­peu­tic Cen­tre in­tended to pro­vide psy­chother­apy treat­ment. Rod­ney Bay Ma­rina and its group of vol­un­teers will fo­cus on im­prov­ing the aes­thet­ics of the fa­cil­ity, with plans to con­struct a gazebo and en­hance the sur­round­ing land­scape.
