Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation to Host Annual Fundraising Banquet 

The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF) is hosting its 13th annual fundraising dinner to help support ocean conservation. Along with raising funds, the event will help recognize researchers, anglers, divers and conservationists who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to preserving the world’s natural resources and have worked to pass that passion of conservation to future generations. Funds generated from the banquet will benefit the GHOF’s ocean research and education efforts. 

The famed marine artist established the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation to help enhance scientific research and educational programs to conserve the marine environment. Dr. Harvey and his daughter Jessica Harvey will entertain guests with news of new initiatives underway. Guests will celebrate the oceans and enjoy dinner, cocktails and a live and silent auction with original Guy Harvey artwork, exciting trips and unique gifts. Attire is an island-themed cocktail. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, tickets are limited.

Auction items include original and reproduced Guy Harvey artwork, exotic vacations, jewelry, gift baskets and other unique gifts. Proceeds from the evening benefit the GHOF’s ocean research and education efforts. The GHOF recently launched a marine science curriculum for middle and high school students based on Dr. Harvey’s decades of scientific research. The educational aspect includes virtual field trips that feature diving with sharks, investigating mangrove environments, witnessing sea turtles nesting and examining the impacts of pollution, climate change and overfishing on the marine world.

Tickets are $300 per person, and a table of 10 is $2,500. To purchase tickets, visit https://one.bidpal.net/ghof2021/ or email GHOF@GuyHarvey.com

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
