Brewer donates to ABBRA relief fund

Brewer Yacht Yards has donated $1,000 to the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association’s Disaster Relief Fund.

The fund gives awards to employees of ABBRA-member facilities who have suffered loss because of natural disasters.

The fund was created in 2004 in response to a fire at Crosby Yacht Yard in Osterville, Mass. Money also has been given to employees of Dog River Marina in Alabama after Hurricane Katrina.

ABBRA is a member organization that represents more than 250 boatyards, repairers and associated industries.
