CLEARWATER – MarineMax recently became a sponsor and supporter of, the caring mission of the “Reel Dream Makers” program.
More than a fishing show, “Reel Dream Makers” is a television series of heart-warming accounts of fulfilling dreams while enjoying the simple joys of fishing and spending time with family. Wrapped in the story are the traditional tips and techniques. But, what makes the “Reel Dream Makers” fishing show different is that it features celebrities and the charities they support alongside one of their families in need.
TradeWinds Island Resorts provides the show’s backdrop.
Last season, the stories varied from foster care families that scrimped and saved to keep their family functioning to a mother who is a war veteran suffering from PTSD and her young son, together fighting homelessness.
The show provides them with an escape in a world-class resort environment with all the accoutrements and the diversion of spending time fishing and reconnecting with themselves and their dreams.
“I can think of no better way to help a family re-connect and recover than time on the water, and when it is for a good cause, how can you beat that,” said Josie Tucci in a press release. Tucci is vice president of MarineMax.
