To promote awareness of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and raise funds for research, Action Craft Boats was a sponsor of the second annual Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association Shark Fishing Tournament. The charitable event raised more than $13,000.
Since 2012, when Action Craft Boats came under new ownership and management, the manufacturer has been involved in sponsoring charities.
"We feel strongly about our role in being an active participant in the community," company president Chad Kovarik said in a statement. "It's more than simply increasing our brand awareness, it's about strengthening and supporting the ties that bind us together as anglers, and as families."
Sponsoring fishing teams is another avenue of outreach for Action Craft Boats. Across the Southeast, these semi-pros compete in such charitable tournaments as the Fallen Eagle Redfish Classic, Hooked for a Cure and Hope Hospice Annual Fillet & Release.
