The Freedom Waters Foundation said it named Jim Sacks, of Advantage Services, and Ron McTighe, of Luke Brown Yachts, to its honorary board of directors during the foundation’s recent East Coast Summit.
“Jim and the entire Advantage Services team have worked relentlessly through the years to provide the organization invaluable support in the areas of technology, organizational development and fundraising,” Debra Frenkel, the foundation’s executive director and a co-founder, said in a statement. “Ron has given endless support to our East Coast programming and by heading up our annual Dania Beach Marine Flea Market fundraiser.”
Keith Perfect, director of web development for Advantage Services, is the foundation’s secretary.
McTighe and a dozen other marine industry volunteers collect used marine equipment and resell it each year at the flea market. The 2018 event is set to take place March 1-4. Anyone who is interested in donating equipment can call Luke Brown Yachts at (954) 525-6617.
The foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of people with special needs and veterans by providing therapeutic marine-related experiences. Programs operate in Collier, Broward, Lee and Palm Beach counties in Florida.
