Each year volunteers from Luke Brown Yachts collect donated marine equipment which they sell at th e Dania Marine Flea Market. The Dania Marine Flea Market is recognized as the largest event of its type in the world. Private individuals and corporate venues sell marine equipment and hardware to tens of thousands of people who attend each year.
Ron McTighe, Mike Hartman and Lyn Campbell, a friend of the firm, not only worked each day of the four day event, they also spent innumberable hours collecting, organizing, and setting up the display. The tens of thousands of dollars that they have raised go to underwrite programming to support children with disabilities, youths at risk, and veteran programming through Luke Brown's charity of choice, Freedom Waters Foundation. Donations of dinghies, inflatables, outboards, and other valuable marine equipment are always appreciated.
