Seafarers’ House

Annual Philanthropic Partnerships

Annual Philanthropic Partners publicly demonstrate their support for hardworking seafarers. Committing to an annual partnership eliminates multiple sponsorship requests from Seafarers’ House throughout the year, allowing you to plan more effectively and efficiently. Additionally, Annual Partners of at least $20,000 receive enhanced recognition throughout the year.* 


2017 Sponsorship Opportunities


The International Golden Compass Award Gala

Honoring Jan Swartz, Group President, Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia

Saturday, May 13, 2017

The International Golden Compass Award Gala is the signature event for the Broward County maritime community and is renowned for being an elegant, fun evening that draws up to 400 local and international guests.


International Day of the Seafarer

June 2017

Each year June 25 is internationally recognized as the "Day of the Seafarer“  to honor the invaluable contribution seafarers make to international trade and the world economy, often at great personal cost to themselves and their families.  Seafarers’ House will celebrate the day on Friday, June 23 at our Casa located within Port Everglades. Aside from food and fun, activities will educate guests on the invaluable impact of the maritime industry and career opportunities in the field, and include  either a port tour or a tour of a local terminal yard and ship.


Shoebox Christmas

The holidays can be a difficult time for mariners who are working far away from family and friends, and missing the experience of opening packages and sharing holiday joy with their loved ones.  Annually hundreds of volunteers from the community collect, package, wrap and deliver gifts to approximately 1,500 mariners aboard as many as 80 different cargo and tanker ships docked at Port Everglades during the holidays.

The South Florida Business Leaders’ Luncheon

November 2017

The Annual South Florida Business Leaders’ Luncheon is regularly attended by more than 250 community and business leaders.  Each year Holland America Line generously hosts this luncheon aboard one of their ships which means 100% of all proceeds raised supports mariners, who are so important to our lives. 


Mariner Transportation

By sponsoring a vehicle, or the entire fleet for a year,  you ensure mariners have free transportation to Seafarers’ House Casa when their vessel arrives at Port Everglades. The vehicles also allow us to bring our services to those  who may not be able leave their ships due to time constraints or visa restrictions.



Seafarers’ House is located in Port Everglades but serves mariners from around the globe.  Our website and emails are important tools to educate mariners and the community about our mission and programs. Mariners not only learn about the services available to them while in Port Everglades, but they also receive tips on health and wellness, safety and other issues they face through our seafarers focused blog.
