Malibu Boats raises money for children’s charities

Malibu Boats staff and factory personnel raised more than $7,000 for Toys for Tots and The Angel Tree Program.

Malibu Boats staff and factory personnel raised more than $7,000 for Toys for Tots and The Angel Tree Program, two charitable non-profits that provide gifts to disadvantaged children.

This year several departments went to great lengths, ranging from raffling TVs and autographed memorabilia to making special lunches and selling tickets. Malibu will match the funds raised.

The staff’s creativity and excitement fueled a friendly competition for who could bring the most joy to dozens of children this holiday season, the company said in a statement.

Malibu said its staff participates in the Toys for Tots and the Angel Tree Program every year.
