On Saturday, March 29, 2014, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and the Harpoon Brewery will host the 4th Annual Harpoon Helps Cupid Splash, a cold-weather plunge and pledge fundraiser to benefit Save the Harbor/Save the Bay's Better Beaches Program.
The event will take place at the BCYF Curley Community Center at M Street Beach in South Boston. At 12 noon, participants will dash and splash into the clean waters of Boston Harbor. After the big splash, Harpoon Brewery and Tasty Burger will provide refreshing beer and delicious burgers on the beach. This year there are four ways to win a round trip ticket on JetBlue Airways—the top three overall fundraisers automatically win tickets, the best costume winners (male and female) each win tickets, everyone who makes a contribution (registration fee or pledge) is entered into a raffle to win a round-trip ticket, and everyone who raises $1000 or more wins a Harpoon Hoodie and is entered into a raffle to win a round-trip ticket.
Funds raised will support Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s Better Beaches Program, which gives small grants to friends groups and local organizations to run free events and programs on each of the DCR beaches from Nahant to Nantasket. Last year about 200 splashers raised over $30,000 to support great events for the public in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy, and Hull.
