Also, "Adopt Skully" dolls will be available for sale. The stuffed turtles are being sold to raise money for sea turtle rescue and are named for a stranded loggerhead rescued from a sandbar by the team in late June. The turtle was taken to the S.C. Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital in Charleston for care.
