Toshiba Supports & Celebrates California Maritime Festival
LAKE FOREST, Calif. & DANA POINT, Calif., Sept. 7, 2022 — Toshiba America Business Solutions commemorates and celebrates California’s rich maritime history by sponsoring Ocean Institute’s 38th annual Maritime Festival, Sept. 9-11 in Dana Point, California.
Local community involvement by Toshiba is especially focused on education and conservation. Toshiba has title-sponsored the Maritime Festival since the event’s beginnings in 1984. Such support aligns with Toshiba’s focus on environmental responsibility to help protect the earth’s precious natural resources and living creatures for future generations. Toshiba firmly supports Ocean Institute because of the nonprofit’s mission to educate the public about the importance of maintaining and protecting the world’s oceans and waterways. Funds raised at the Maritime Festival help make these efforts possible.
While the Ocean Institute has numerous educational opportunities to experience throughout the year, the Festival itself presents an ideal seaside, fun educational experience for people of all ages. Attendees may climb aboard one or more of the five historic tall ships for an excursion off the Dana Point coastline. Festival goers may also visit the Sahm Marine Education Center’s discovery touch tank or shark tank to gain first-hand experience with an array of marine life. An evening gala affords attendees an even more personal opportunity to understand Ocean Institute’s mission and vision.
“Toshiba has been a steadfast supporter of the Maritime Fest (formerly the Tall Ships Festival) for decades,” says Ocean Institute President and CEO Dr. Wendy Marshall. “We are incredibly thankful and honored to be able to offer this fun-filled event to the community which simply would not be possible without Toshiba’s support.
We look forward to a wonderful weekend that will undoubtedly create treasured memories while supporting Ocean Institute’s education programs. Ocean Institute has been honored to have such unwavering support in Toshiba.”
“The Ocean Institute is truly one of the treasures within our community and Toshiba is grateful to offer its support,” states Toshiba America Business Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Larry White. “Across 45 years, their team has educated millions of our children, teachers, parents and visitors about marine science and its importance and impact on the world.”
