Music star Kenny Chesney (pictured second from left) and Costa Sunglasses presented a $50,000 check to Pat Murray (left) who is the president of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA). The funds were reaised through sales of Kenny Chesney’s limited-edition line of Costa Sunglasses during his 2011 Goin’ Coastal nationwide conert tour.
Chseney, a six-time Country Music Award winner, often sings about the fishing and boating lifestyle and has been working with Costa to develop signature sunglasses and raise money for marine conservation. The partnership has helped to raise more than $50,000. For more information on Costa, visit www.costadelmar.com.
The CCA is a non-profit organization comprised of 17 coastal state chapters spanning the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic seaboard and the Pacific Northwest. CCA’s strength is drawn from the tens of thousands of recreational saltwater anglers who make up its membership. From south Texas to the upper reaches of Maine, CCA’s grassroots influence is felt through state capitals, U.S. Congress and, most importantly, in the conservation and restoration of our coastal marine resources.
