Sea Tow received a $5,000 donation from brewer Anheuser-Busch and Anheuser-Busch distributor Clare Rose to fund the Sea Tow Foundation’s 42 life jacket loaner stations at locations across Long Island, N.Y.

The funding is made possible through a partnership among Sea Tow Services International Inc., Clare Rose and Anheuser-Busch. The donation is the second from Clare Rose and Anheuser-Busch and will enable the non-profit foundation to continue to make life jackets available free to the public at the loaner stands.

The foundation’s national loaner station program allows boaters to borrow life jackets to replace missing, damaged or ill-fitting personal flotation devices or to use for guests aboard their boats. Further information and a list of loaner stations in the United States are available by visiting and clicking on “Safety Resources.”

“We want to thank Anheuser-Busch and Clare Rose for their generous donation in support of safe boating in our area,” Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer of Sea Tow said in a statement. “In addition to encouraging boaters to wear life jackets, we ask all boaters to be courteous on the water to other boaters and to designate a sober skipper. We want to do what we can to help reduce preventable accidents and have a safer 2014 boating season.”

“We are proud to contribute to the Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Program in our area,” Clare Rose president Sean Rose said. “We encourage all boaters to wear life jackets when out on the water and boat responsibly.”
