Helping The Community

Cruisin' for a Cure: Harley Franco is a board member of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and has helped raise millions of dollars for the cause. One of HMS's primary fundraisers is the Cruisin' for a Cure program in which contributors bid on a chance to cruise on one of the companys state-of-the-art tugboats. Many of the vessels in the Harley Marine fleet are named after children with Cystic Fibrosis

Being a loyal member of the local CFF chapter, Harley Franco, as well as other members of the HMS team have contributed both time and money to bettering the lives of children with Cystic Fibrosis. Harley and his wife, Lela, received the 2000 Breath of Life Award in appreciation for their extraordinary commitment to the organization and its goals.

HMS co-hosted the first ever Tesoro/HMS Golf Tournament that raised over $181,000 for Seattle Children's Home in 2001. The funds were used for desperateley needed repairs to the children's living facilities, keep outreach programs available to help kids of all ages, and to assist with special education requirements. This wonderful fundraiser is now an annual event.

The above listed accomplishments only scratch the surface of HMS community contributions. The HMS team finds it imperative to give back to their supporters and do so generously.
