I’M LOGAN IT Foundation Hosts Successful Flag Football Fundraiser for Charity

After completing the TACO Marine Project Boat fundraiser for the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation in November 2017, we’re excited to recap the most recent fundraising event that took place Dec. 30, 2017 in Clearwater, Florida.

More than 33 teams and dozens of friends and family came together to participate in the 6th annual I’M LOGAN IT Foundation Flag Football Fundraiser – raising more than $20,000 for charity in memory of Logan Kushner.

Through the Foundation since 2012, more than $300,000 has been donated to charity – supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and college scholarships for deserving students.

Congratulations to the winning teams in three divisions.

“MVP” in the Top Gun division.
“Sniper Gang” in the Competitive division.
“Gabagool” in the Weekend Warrior division.

Thank you to the many volunteers who supported the Foundation in a variety of tasks, including the field set up, team sign-in, scoring, managing the raffle and silent auction, preparing and serving the lunchtime barbecue, concessions and clean up. Without the volunteers, this event would not be possible.

Special thanks to Tim Sattinger and the referees for another fantastic job on the field, Ed Grube and Events Done Right – the best DJ and entertainment in Tampa Bay, and Fanny Scargle for wonderful photography – beautifully capturing the events of such a special day.

Also, we’d like to thank our many sponsors, including Sonny’s BBQ, the American Running Company, Bouchard Insurance, Capogna’s Dugout, Don’s Marine Salvage, Huntington Learning Center and Safety Harbor Montessori for all your tremendous support.

We hope to see everyone back at the end of 2018 for the 7th annual I’M LOGAN IT Flag Football Fundraiser on Saturday, December    29.

Thank You for Visiting the TACO Marine Project Boat at the Tampa Boat Show

From all of us at TACO Marine, thank you for supporting the Project Boat Raffle Fundraiser during the Tampa Boat Show! Many attendees not only bought raffle tickets but got to see and explore Project Boat in-person and learn about the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation.

Captain Fear and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders stopped by the TACO Marine Project Boat Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, at the Tampa Boat Show.

All of the raffle ticket proceeds are given to the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation, which provides support to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and college scholarships to deserving students.

I’M LOGAN IT was created in memory of Logan Matthew Kushner, who passed away in 2012. The Foundation aims to help young people establish healthier self-esteem through acts of kindness and mentorship – values by which Logan lived.

The TACO Marine Project Boat raffle drawing is slated for Nov. 5 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. You can purchase tickets online at go.rallyup.com/projectboat and in-person at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Nov. 1-5 at booth #2000-A. We hope to see you there!

The TACO Marine Project Boat is sponsored by many marine leaders, including Yamaha Marine, SeaDek and many more!
