The YachtWorld Foundation, which recently announced SeaKeepers International as its primary beneficiary in 2011, is sponsoring a gala on Feb. 18 during the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show.

His Royal Highness Khaled Bin Sultan, president and chairman of the Living Yachts Foundation, is inviting guests to join the International SeaKeepers Society, the YachtWorld Foundation, Yachts International and Epic Residences for "A Scientific Journey."

The event will take guests on a gastronomic adventure under the Miami city lights, featuring cuisine from restaurants in the city. There will be a VIP reception at the Epic Residence 54th floor Penthouse, followed by tours of the 219-foot research yacht Golden Shadow and food tastings along the Miami River at the Epic Marina.

"YachtWorld Foundation is honored to support The International SeaKeepers Society and this extraordinary event," said Jessica Muffett, publisher emeritus, YachtWorld.com, in a statement. "Concerned boaters can learn about ocean research and give back to the essential habitat we all love and share while partying under the stars."
