MarineMax Fort Myers hosted a March 4 event that included silent and live auctions and raised more than $40,000 for the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.

MarineMax said guests at the invitation-only event had the opportunity to step aboard stunning yachts while enjoying cocktails, dinner and entertainment under the stars. The hospital is part of the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation.

“I am exceptionally proud of my team at MarineMax Fort Myers for making this event so successful for this great cause,” MarineMax Fort Myers general manager Ryan West said in a statement.

“Everyone had a great time while serving the sick or injured children and their families who are our neighbors and friends. The Golisano Children’s Hospital is one of the finest institutions serving our community and beyond.”
