St. Maarten Initiative

Yacht Club at Isle de Sol Charity Fair

February 23, 2019

The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol held a charity fair to raise money and awareness for the following charities:
Each charity held events at each of their booths and around the marina to help raise money for their charities. There was a reef clean-up, mangrove clean-up, sail boating demonstrations, swim lessons, tournaments, and lots of items for sale throughout the day.
Charities like the Nature Foundation St. Maarten work towards educating the youth on conservation issues and promoting environmental awareness in the community to stop environmental pollution, protect the environment and reduce single-use plastics. Also, they help to protect and enhance wildlife and marine life species on St. Maarten. To donate directly to the Nature Foundation St. Maarten click here.
Our number one goal is to work together inspiring others through the act of giving back our time, support efforts, accessible resources, goods and services.  Please
