Thank you for Pelican Plunge participation

info@islandpacket.comFebruary 11, 2013 

What a great turnout for the fifth annual Pelican Plunge. There were more than 400 plungers and almost 700 well-wishers. What a day.

Congratulations to the following for raising the most money in their category: Organization, Beaufort Shag Club, $685; business, Boondocks, $362; individual, Steve Leverton, $250; child, Isabelle Cuchinella, $222.

As of now, more than $4,000 has been raised, which is just enough to ensure that 32 third-, fifth- and seventh-grade classes scheduled in a Discover Carolina program can come at no charge for a day of hands-on learning at Hunting Island State Park.

Not into the "Plunge thing" but want to help create future stewards of our natural resources? You can contribute anytime through our website, www.friendsofhuntingisland.org. Thanks again, Beaufort.
