It’s been almost two weeks since hundreds of partygoers squeezed into The Sandbar Sports Grill in Key West, Fla., but the impact from the annual OffshoreOnly.com/Speedonthewater.com Key West Bash will last well beyond that night, this month and even this year thanks to the very generous group of boaters—and sponsors—who came out in droves for the celebration.

And really, despite all of the catching up with friends, sharing of boating stories and the variety of free food and drinks available, that is what it’s all about, or at least what it has evolved into.
With more than double what was raised in 2017 for Samuel’s House, a local non-profit organization that provides housing and supportive services to the homeless in their time of need while assisting them in becoming self-sufficient, all of us involved with organizing the party—Yvonne Aleman, Greg Harris, Matt Trulio and myself—are thankful for everyone who had a hand in raising $20,000-plus dollars for the charity.
