A Beacon of Light at Sea


At the heart of the SoFlo Boat Show lies a commitment to promoting boating safety and awareness. The Loud And Live Foundation and SoFlo Boat Show is proud to launch the A Beacon of Light at Sea initiative, in collaboration with renowned foundations The LA6 Lucas Alvarez Foundation, The Lucy Fernandez Foundation, and The Monica Burguera Foundation. United by a shared mission and vision to foster boating safety, educational awareness, and lifesaving efforts within our community.

Each of these partner foundations brings a unique perspective and valuable contributions that are crucial for the success of this initiative. More than promoting safe boating practices, we aim to create a lasting culture of responsibility and awareness that resonates throughout our community. Let the safety tips at the Sea Trial docks guide you to learn more about our initiative. Visit our informational booth for further education and safety resources.

The Lucy Fernandez Foundation, established in honor and loving memory of Luciana Cristina Fernandez, will provide scholarship and experiential learning opportunities for students at Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, her beloved school, to share in what generations of young women like Lucy were fortunate to experience – empowerment and success through the values founded in Tradition, Sisterhood, Spirituality, and Service. With “Mary in all things,” we’ll continue Lucy’s legacy of Faith, Kindness, Hope, and Love.

The Lucy Fernandez Foundation will also help create awareness around boater and watercraft safety by working with private and government agencies, both local and beyond, by aiding them in their initiatives that support, promote, and celebrate her favorite pastime and greatest passion, being on the water. By encouraging Awareness, Education, Safety, and Fun for the next generation of responsible boaters, Lucy’s experience will play an intricate role in reshaping the culture, keeping our children, friends, families, and communities safe, and preserving this beautiful way of life.
