South Carolina marina donates to local charities

A marina in Charleston, S.C., raised more than $1,500 to help local charities, citing a good year for business.

“We have been very fortunate in the last year, as we have leased 16 new commercial spaces to new businesses that were formerly vacant,” Nicholas Macpherson, a partner of Bohicket Marina, said in a letter to Soundings Trade Only. “We have signed many new annual slip tenants and have reached capacity in our dry storage.”

Bohicket is home to 90 dry-storage slips, 200 wet slips and roughly 45,000 square feet of commercial space.

“With all of our good fortune this past year we decided to help our local charities, and the results were fantastic. We raised over $1,500 cash, as well as sponsored 20 children for the local charity Debi's Kids.”
