Frigibar Industries donates to Florida charity


For the fourth year, Frigibar Industries is showing its support for the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County, Fla.

Helping the children's charity organization with its annual fundraiser, marine refrigeration manufacturer Frigibar donated a certificate redeemable for one of its Ensign model cockpit freezers for the auction.

Scheduled for Thursday through Saturday at Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas, the fundraiser is part of the 27th annual ShowBoats International Rendezvous. The festivities include a formal gala with live and silent auctions, and entertainment.

The freezer unit donated by Frigibar, with a retail value of more than $4,000, is among a variety of services and goods for guests to bid on.

The event has raised more than $30 million to date to benefit the club and its more than 12,750 members. The funds help support programs and maintain the club’s 12 locations in Broward County.
