TACO Marine-Sponsored Tournament Supported Florida Toys For Tots

This past October, Dorado Boats, headquartered in Palm Harbor, Florida, hosted its first ever Fall Classic Fishing Tournament in Tampa, Florida. As a leader in the sport fishing community for nearly 60 years, TACO Marine was a proud sponsor of this exciting event!

Not only were competitors angling for Snook, Red Fish, Trout and a Grand Slam, but all proceeds benefited the Toys for Tots Foundation – supporting children and families in need during the holiday season.

Thanks to this wonderful event, more than 300 toys were donated to Toys for Tots in Pinellas County, Florida – spreading cheer and the spirit of giving.

BEYOND THE BOAT: TACO MARINE GIVES TO CHARITY, HELPING THOSE IN NEED

The TACO Marine Project Boat began more than two years ago as bold idea to raise money for charity – specifically, the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation, which provides support to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation [JDRF] and scholarships to deserving students.

I’M LOGAN IT was created in memory of Logan Matthew Kushner, who passed away in 2012. Logan left behind a legacy dedicated to education, team sports and helping others. Logan never knew a stranger. His most important qualities were caring about people and positively impacting the lives of others. His smiles, hugs and enthusiasm for life were genuine.

Logan also enjoyed being involved in the JDRF, where he parked cars in a full tuxedo during an annual gala to support a close family friendship. The Foundation’s goal is to remind us to always give 150 percent effort in everything we do and to always be there to lend a hand to those in need.

Since launching Project Boat, Ship Shape TV documented the boat’s transformation in a 29-part Web series seen across the country. Viewers can experience everything from stripping the boat bare to installing the helm, seating, hard top and so much more.

What makes Project Boat unique is the fact that it’s a fully remodeled, one-of-a-kind, completely customized Pursuit 2650 with the latest, most-advanced products on the market today. This is a once-in-a-lifetime boat you won’t find anywhere else, and 100 percent of the proceeds are given to charity.
