Big Sweep Beach Clean-Up Held

On Saturday, September 29th we held our Annual Beach Clean-Up!  This event is sponsored by the Town of Carolina Beach, Pleasure Island Parrot Heads and Pleasure Island Sea Turtle Project. 
We would like to thank local businesses that provided discounts:  El Cazador Mexican Restaurant, Uncle Vinny’s and Bame Ace Hardware. 
The following organizations donated raffle prizes:  Odysea Surf & Kiteboard School, Tidal Creek Co-op, Island Wellness Market, Red Cross, Surfrider Foundation and CB Surf Shop. 
A special thank you to Girl Scout Troop 678 for volunteering: Jacile Sparrow (and mom Toi), Mariah Spader (and dad Robert), Taylor Reilly and Ellie Gregory-York (with mom and Troop Leader Mrs Danielle).
We had lovely weather and over 250 volunteers to participate in the Big Sweep!  Britt’s Doughnuts provided free doughnuts and Port City Java provided coffee for our volunteers.  Jolly Mon the DJ was spinning the tunes and Papa Murphy’s provided pizza.
Thanks to everyone who helped in making this event a huge success!  We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
