Autotether to sponsor Gulf Coast benefit concert

Autotether Inc. today announced its sponsorship of the Fish Aid Music Festival, a concert to benefit the Gulf Coast's devastated fisheries and wetlands.

Autotether plans to donate 5 percent of online sales to customers using the discount code "AID-5." Customers who purchase Autotether products online and use the code will receive a 5 percent discount on purchases made through March 31.

"The Gulf Coast is still suffering from the devastation brought on by last year's unprecedented environmental disaster," national sales manager Lenny Mazzotti said in a statement. "It's incumbent upon the boating and fishing industries to do everything in our collective power to support the recovery and rehabilitation of the region, and we're thrilled to be part of the Fish Aid Music Festival."

The festival is scheduled for March 12 and will support the recovery and restoration of the Louisiana coast, St. Bernard Parish, La., and beyond. Proceeds from the event will go directly to the recovery and restoration efforts underway along the Gulf Coast.

Chester, Conn.-based Autotether's wireless lanyard and "screamer" wireless alarm systems offer wireless kill-switch activation and man-overboard indication.
