Pinnacle Team Leader Ryan Andersen -
Ten Years Establishing Orphanages In Southeast Asia
Ryan Andersen is an extraordinary person. He leads Pinnacle's detailing crew in Chicago throughout the boating season. In the off-season he heads to Southeast Asia establishing orphanages for poor children.
In the photo above Ryan, with some of his adopted “family,” watch the rest of the orphans perform a traditional dance at the water festival in Phnom Phen. 2010 marks Ryan's tenth consecutive year of support. We are proud of Ryan and his wonderful contribution to the lives of young people.
Please visit Ryan's Hands On Helping Website to see photos and learn more about his important work. Also read his recent Newsletter regarding donations and his plans for this winter.
Each season long-standing Chicago Captain Ed Morris contributes his time, timeslots and helm skills to benefit local charities. Ed and “First Mate” Lauree donate “Skyline Champagne Cruises” to charity auctions, with the proceeds going to support worthy intuitions like the House of the Good Shepherd (women & children’s shelter), Equestrian Connection (children and adults with developmental disabilities) and the Metropolis Performing Arts Center.
The cruises are fully catered with a menu of indulgent delicacies, including caviar, shrimp, and champagne, served in an intimate shipboard setting and topped off with a lakefront and skyline sail at sunset.
Cruises are also donated directly to the charities’ children and beneficiaries, in the bid-winner’s name, providing the kids with a “Safe Harbor Cruise” - an exciting day-sail outing to remember.
We are collectively enriched by the remarkable and heartfelt generosity of people like Ryan, Ed and so many of our members, and by the many lives their contributions touch and transform. Learn More > .
