Suntex Marina Investors LLC (Suntex), the premier owner and operator of best-in-class marina properties, announced today it will hold a fundraising event for Folds of Honor during the grand opening of Miami Beach Marina in Miami, Florida. Suntex has assumed official management of Miami Beach Marina after acquiring equity interest in the marina from RCI Group in mid-January.

"We are honored to hold this fundraising effort at the beautiful Miami Beach Marina during our Grand Opening Celebration," said Johnny Powers, CEO of Suntex. "Since 2012, Suntex Marinas has partnered with the Folds of Honor and their mission to provide scholarships to the families of fallen and wounded soldiers. While we are celebrating our new management of Miami Beach Marina, driving awareness for the Folds of Honor cause is paramount to our core values. We are honored to be able to use this event to help those who have sacrificed so much for our country."

Since 2007, Folds of Honor has worked to support the nearly nine out of ten military spouses and children who do not qualify for federal scholarships. More than one million dependents have been financially affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Called the 'Gateway to the Caribbean in the Heart of Miami Beach' Miami Beach Marina is two minutes from the ocean, minutes to the Miami International Airport and downtown Miami, and right next door to the vibrant night life, trendy restaurants, fashionable shops and galleries of South Beach. Offering 400 boat slips for vessels up to 250 feet, the marina is also a showcase for the state-of-the-art facilities and first-class amenities that Suntex Marinas are known for.

With a guest list that includes local dignitaries, industry leaders and media, the Grand Opening festivities will feature great food, cocktails, entertainment and both a live and silent auction to enhance the fundraising efforts. Event sponsors include:
