Recap: 2019 Tribute in Florida

Posted on April 22, 2019

The Coast Guard Foundation hosted the 25th Tribute to the Coast Guard Seventh District on April 18 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The event was originally scheduled for late January but was postponed because of the partial government shutdown.

The rescheduled date did nothing to dampen spirits- in fact, this year’s event was one of the most successful in years -- with more than 400 people in the crowded ballroom at the Pier 66 Hotel & Marina.

Upwards of $380,000 was raised at the event to support Coast Guard Foundation programs and initiatives that provide education, morale and relief support for Coast Guard members and families throughout Florida, Puerto Rico and the rest of the country.
