The 2012 Ocean Beauty Benefit Golf Tournament, held 10 August, raised USD 10,000 to benefit hunger-fighting organization SeaShare.
“This is only possible through the support and dedication of our business partners, our suppliers, our customers and all of the devoted employees at Ocean Beauty,” said Mark Palmer, Ocean Beauty president. “This is bigger than Ocean Beauty. We rely on every one of these sponsors for our success, and every one of them serves the larger community through this support. With their help, we can live out our belief that sustainability is not just about the fish — it’s about the fish and everybody who depends on the fish.”
Ocean Beauty would like to thank the following major sponsors for their generous support: Alaska Airlines, Alaska Marine Lines, Lynden Transport, Brown Lines, Apex Cold Storage, Carlile Transportation, Junction Solutions, North Pacific Seafoods, Raw Seafoods, Silgan Containers, SM Products, Sym-Pac, Vita, Amende and Schultz, CenturyLink, Commodity Forwarders, Frontier Packaging, Horizon Lines, Icicle Seafoods, Maersk, Marine Harvest Canada, JS McMillan, Nakamura, Northern Air Cargo, Ocean Blue, Odyssey, Penn Cove and Presidio.
Other tournament sponsors included Aquagold Seafood, Azimuth, Cannon Fish, East Coast Lobster, Fisher King, GCI, Georgia Pacific, Great Pacific, Hanjin, Heartland Catfish, International Seafoods of Alaska, Ivar's, Janssen Associates, the Nerland Agency, Nippon Shoken, Parker Smith and Feek, Salmones Pacific Star, Shining Ocean, South Bend Products, Sujiyo, Twin Tails, Western United, AGS, Mac's Oysters, Oregon Lox and JP Shellfish.
“Our donors embrace their responsibility to their communities, and to good resource stewardship,” said Jim Harmon, SeaShare executive director. “Protein is the most difficult type of food for food banks to get, and nothing is more needed or nutritious than seafood. SeaShare’s goal isn’t just to feed people, but to use seafood to feed people well.”
