All proceeds from this event benefit the Port Manatee Propeller Club, a 501(c) 6 organization. Since 2005, the Port Manatee Propeller Club has established itself with a solid membership exceeding 100 professionals, serving Port Manatee and Tampa Bay’s maritime community. The Propeller Club’s aim is to promote the maritime industry through many of its programs and by partnering with similar organizations. It’s goal is to educate legislators and the public as to the importance and necessity of all waterborne commerce.
This year begins the Club’s annual scholarship program to benefit eligible students seeking education and employment focused on the maritime industry. The Club’s intention is to provide support for Port Manatee’s growth through development of ‘homegrown talent’ who will hopefully one day help to serve our Port’s needs as it continues to grow and develop. In this way, funds raised from the golf tournament participants and business sponsors will be given back to serve our community through this scholarship program.
