The founders of Bay Water Boat Club have donated $1,000 each from the Boat Club organization and the Boat Club Community Fund to the Naples Pride organization. Naples Pride is a volunteer-based grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to unite and empower the LGBTQ+ community of SWFL, to educate and foster equality for all by providing emergency funds, counseling, housing, and more since 2017.
“Our family has always been philanthropic,” Vice President of Bay Water Boat Club, Derrick Botana said. “We believe in equality for all, especially for those of the LQBTQ+ community. To spread the love, we have provided financial support to local organizations passionate about this cause like Naples Pride because we want love to win.”
