$20,000 donated to local charities

The Roseway Ship The Roseway Ship

On board the Schooner Roseway, The Savannah Harbor Foundation and the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa presented $20,000 to eight different charities.

A special gift was also given to the Roseway thanking them for all they do here in Savannah and hoping they will return for many years to come.

"We've got a school system now that's doing so many things that's really good for our students, but what they lack is the opportunity for an experiential learning session.  I think that's what the Roseway gives them, an opportunity to learn and put real life application to the tall ship," said Mark Spadoni, President of the Savannah Harbor Foundation.

The money was collected through the Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights and the Savannah Harbor Charity Classic Golf Tournament.
