Megayacht News calendar sales to support Coast Guard Foundation


Megayacht News will donate 25 percent of its Spectacular Superyachts 2014 wall calendar sales to the Coast Guard Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to the education and welfare of Coast Guard members and their families.

The $20 calendar, which became available Oct. 14, pays homage to some of the biggest megayachts afloat. For each one sold, the foundation will receive a $5 donation to support the services it provides.

“Coasties, as they affectionately call themselves, work everywhere from Florida to Alaska to overseas,” Megayacht News founder Diane M. Byrne said in a statement. “In their efforts to rescue those in need, enforce maritime law, protect our homeland and preserve the environment, they go out in weather conditions that would make even the saltiest person’s toes curl. The Coast Guard Foundation was selected as the charity this year for their more than 40 years of support to our Coast Guard heroes and their families.”

"We are thrilled to be selected to receive a donation from the Megayacht News’ lovely annual Spectacular Superyachts 2014 calendar sales,” foundation president Anne B. Brengle said. “The Coast Guard Foundation supports families in any way possible, and we are happy to accept the donated proceeds and put them to good use to make a real, positive impact on the lives of the brave men and women who protect our homeland and their families."
