A major announcement... leading up to another.
But for now... I am happy to announce the first of several significant breakthroughs:
The International Yacht Collection and their parent company, Trinity Yachts, have joined the HORNET Team as our first corporate sponsors! IYC and Trinity will be hosting a cocktail fundraiser for the USS HORNET Project at their pavilion at this year's Palm Beach International Boat Show - Friday, March 27th 2015 at 6 pm. This will be an exclusive, invitation only event, so stay tuned for photos - which we'll hope to get online the next day. We'll be rolling out figurehead Triumphant for the occasion, and honoring several of HORNET's other new sponsors - for which announcement you'll have to wait until Penguin Day.
Many thanks are in order to Bob Saxon, President of IYC for his vision in stepping aboard with IYC as HORNET's first major corporate sponsor - our hats are off to you, sir!
More to follow... on both the present day project and the historical HORNET - keep checking back!
