On October 30th, Weldon Boyd, owner of East Bay Deli, and our club hosted, with the support of several community sponsors, a “Halloween Bash” to collect food for the flood victims of Nichols, S.C. and Fair Bluff, N.C., two communities with substantial and long-lasting loss of property and businesses from Hurricane Matthew.
A crowd of over 250 attended the ‘Bash” and enjoyed a fun-filled day to help these communities. Attendees were asked to bring non-perishable food items and water. The items, collected by Hearts with Hands Disaster Relief, filled a truck! Kids enjoyed games and awesome inflatables provided by Awesome Inflatables! Alligator Adventure conducted a live animal show and Ha Ha the Clown painted faces for young children. Renzi Magic Comedy performed a magic show and music and entertainment were provided by Lisa Snow Karaoke. The Halloween costume contest showcased the costumes of over eighty children, three adults, and five pets!
Jeri McCumbee, chairperson for the “Halloween Bash”, commented, “We also had the support of several other community sponsors including Access Medical, the City of North Myrtle Beach, Duplin Winery, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce, Target and Colette’s Popcorn. We had our own issues after the hurricane, but nothing like the folks in Nichols and Fair Bluff, some who may never open their businesses again. I’m proud that our community and our club came together to aid our sister communities in this way and had some fun doing it! Check out our “Halloween Bash” Facebook Photo Album.
