Teague Custom Marine Presents Krusin’ for Kids 2018 – the Kickoff to Desert Storm

Teague Custom Marine is thrilled to be co-hosting the 7th Annual Krusin’ for Kids event at DESERT STORM 2018, with Storm Poker Runs and other sponsors!

Krusin’ for Kids was created as a day for our boating community to share what we all love so much. Our Desert Storm Family and extra volunteers come together to give special needs children and adults rides in high performance boats and then host a BBQ and pool party that they are able to enjoy with their friends!


WHEN: April 18th, 2018 from 9am – 2pm
Please be at the London Bridge Lower Pool Area by 9am for check-in and a brief driver’s meeting. We want to start promptly as our special guests and participants will start to arrive and we hope to start boat rides at 10am.
