SEADOGS, the Seabrook Island dog and beach advocacy group, is holding the annual Beach Walk on April 27, 2017, starting at 5 pm on North Beach. The Beach Walk is a tradition that has helped the Seabrook Island community combine fun for dogs (and their humans) with charitable giving to worthy Charleston animal causes.
For the dogs, Beach Walk is a great time to run and play on the beach with other friendly dogs in the community. For the humans, there is the satisfaction of being able to take advantage of a wonderful feature of Seabrook island. As Past President Jerry Cummin said, “At this event on North Beach, dogs can enjoy themselves with their owners. There is also the satisfaction of knowing that this event raises funds for other dogs in Charleston to survive and thrive.”
This year, SEADOGS has designated Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary (http://halliehill.com/) to be the 501 (c)(3) charity for giving. Hallie Hill, located in Hollywood, SC, provides sanctuary to special needs dogs that might have trouble finding a home. As in previous years, there will be a President’s challenge for giving. President Mitch Pulwer said “Hallie Hill is doing marvelous work in the Charleston area. It is in the spirit of helping that Jerry and I will match all donations of $100 or more, up to a grand total of $2000. Last year, we raised over $3,880 at this event. Let’s beat that number this year!”
All residents of Seabrook Island are invited to join the SEADOGS Beach Walk. You don’t have to be a member of SEADOGS to participate. However, residents can join SEADOGS at the event. Membership is $25 per year.
Access to North Beach is through walkway 1 or 2. You can bring your own drinks and it would be lovely if you could provide an hors d’oeuvre or dessert to share with a few others. Please see the poster for more details. Your dog will have fun and so will you. Although not a requirement for attendance, please consider being generous to local dogs at Hallie Hill by making a donation at the event. Checks can be made directly to Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary.
