ASA Electronics sponsors Nautique build for charity


Audio and video electronics manufacturer ASA Electronics is partnering with Polk Audio to help sponsor the construction of a Nautique Super Air G21 boat for the As Our Own foundation by providing a complete Polk Ultra marine audio system.

As Our Own is a non-profit organization that works in India, rescuing girls from certain enslavement and exploitation. The children are given lifelong care to help ensure they have a prosperous future. The organization also assists communities in need to help equip and empower the society to transform from the inside out.

The Nautique Boat Co. traveled to India and saw the impact that As Our Own was having on many orphaned children.

As a part of the Nautique Cares initiative, the company plans to donate a $120,000 special-edition G21 to help the organization. To be entered in the sweepstakes to win the exclusive boat, applicants must make a minimum donation of $100 to As Our Own. The boat will be raffled off at the beginning of next year.

“We are happy to donate our premium Polk Ultra marine audio system for the Nautique G21 boat,” Southeast regional manager Scott Churchill said in a statement. “We believe As Our Own is a wonderful organization and we are thrilled to be able to make a contribution.”
