As most of you are aware, on Tuesday August 16th, we hired a helicopter pilot to take us over Wrightsville Beach where we intended to dropped $1,000 cash and promotional material over the sand. The “stunt” did not go as planned and we ended up dropping those items into the water. Not only did we potentially harm the wildlife and dirty the water, but we were unable to gain access for our cleanup team, leaving the responsibility of the remaining mess on event staff.
This Sunday August 21st, will be our first beach clean on Wrightsville Beach. This will be a full beach sweep. The clean will be starting at 9:00am at Stone Street and we would love to have anyone available join us in trying to keep Wrightsville clean.
We acknowledge that this mistake was ours and ours to own, but we would appreciate all available hands. We are currently working to schedule a Masonboro clean as well. We will keep you up to date with these efforts as they are finalized.
