Club members OEC, Seaboard Marine, RCCL, Disney, OSG, Bouchard Transportation, Harley Marine, Dunlap Towing, Phoenix Bulk and York Overseas all participated, along with an enthusiastic contingent of Brokers, Attorneys and industry experts from all over the US and from as far away as Venezuela and Panama.
The local New Jersey Devils Ice Hockey team were also represented and generously donated signed jerseys and hockey sticks for the raffle. Amongst raffle prize winners was Dan Tadros of Chaffe McCall, who won a 75" smart TV, sponsored by attorneys Lyons and Flood in New York and Gallagher Sharp in Detroit.
