IYC hosts exclusive charity event at Palm Beach International Boat Show

At the recent Palm Beach International Boat Show IYC was proud to host an exclusive charity event in aid of the Morgan Hoffmann Foundation for Muscular Dystrophy. Held on 23 March 2018 at the IYC show stand, the event saw PGA players come together with over 150 guests for a special evening that included a silent auction, live entertainment, cocktails and canapes. Guests were able to enjoy a relaxed, luxury event, with a backdrop of superyachts, all in aid of a truly worthy cause.

The Morgan Hoffman Foundation was founded in support of PGA Pro Morgan Hoffmann who revealed in December 2017 that he had been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.The Foundation’s goal is to help raise funds towards research for a cure and assistance for those living with the disease. The IYC event saw Hoffmann in attendance together with several other current and former PGA Tour names including Rickie Fowler, Bud Vauley, Jamie Lovemark, John Curran, Jordan Niebrugge and Brad Faxon, who have all thrown their support behind the Foundation.

IYC is inspired by Hoffmann’s approach and his determination to raise funds to help others and the charity event was the perfect way to profile the foundation and raise awareness of Hoffmann’s work. The IYC event benefitted from several supporters including official sponsors IGY Marinas, Berth One Palm Beach, Lindsay Strafuss Realtor, Yachts International Magazine, SSI Petroleum and Davos. Generous donations towards the silent auction included coveted prizes such as a stay at a luxury villa in the Grand Isle Resort in Exuma, Bahamas, supplied by GIV Bahamas.

IYC is proud that this event proved such a success, raising more than $50,000 and thanks all those who attended and supported the charity night for making it possible.
