Nominations for 2013 Go Blue Awards closed on August 26th.
The 5th Annual Go Blue Awards Luncheon will be held on Friday, November 8, 2013 at PGA National Resort & Spa.

Starting on July 15th, LMC will be accepting nominations for the 2013 Go Blue Awards, which are given annually to three individuals and a business that are making extraordinary contributions to promoting ocean conservation. Nominations can be made through September 1st. Finalists will be announced at a Blue Friends social being held in September.

We are thrilled to announce Jim Toomey as our 2013 guest speaker. For the past 13 years Jim Toomey has been creating the daily comic strip Sherman's Lagoon, which appears in over 150 newspapers in North America. Sherman's Lagoon is a combination of Toomey’s two lifelong passions: drawing and the sea. Toomey became a certified diver at the age of 12, and, as an adult, has logged dives all over the world, including Asia, Africa, the Mediterranean, Latin America, and extensively in the kelp forests of California.

Winners will be announced on November 8, 2013 at the 5th Annual Go Blue Awards Luncheon at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.
