BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Right Coast Independent (RCI) Optics, a premium sunglass brand based in Cocoa Beach, demonstrated their commitment to conservation through $10,000 recently awarded to Brevard Zoo’s Restore Our Shores (ROS) program.
ROS uses oysters, mangroves and seagrass to restore living shoreline in the Indian River Lagoon, engaging community members in the process.
The gift consists of proceeds from raffle tickets sold at RCI’s annual partner fishing tournament, which was sponsored by Cayo Boatworks, Yamaha Outboards, SeaDek Marine Products, Skinny Water Culture and Florida Beer Company, on Saturday, August 4.
The lucky winner received a boat and trailer donated by Cayo Boat Works, Yamaha and RCI.
“The entire team at RCI Optics is beyond excited to partner with Brevard Zoo to do our part in preserving our home waters,” said Troy Scott of RCI.
“Everyone had a great time at the 2018 RCI Optics Inshore Invitational Tournament and we hope to raise even more money next year. A huge thank you goes out to all the volunteers who donated their time and energy!”
