(HOUSTON) ­— Titan Salvage, Crowley Maritime Corp.'s Houston-based marine salvage, emergency response and wreck removal company, is hosting the American Salvage Association’s (ASA) Education Committee Fundraiser on Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Houston Maritime Museum. All proceeds from the event will support ASA Education Committee scholarships and science fair prizes.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the greater maritime community to come together for a good cause,” said Lindsay Malen, Titan’s director of business development and ASA Educational Committee member. “There is a shortage of seafarers and maritime support personnel, and we hope that this event will promote awareness and provide the funds necessary to help increase opportunities for younger generations interested in joining the maritime community.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the maritime museum and network among friends and colleagues, while enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a dinner buffet.

“We are very thankful to the Houston Maritime Museum for donating their space and look forward to seeing HMM grow as an attraction for those who visit Houston,” Malen said.
