Boat cruise raises funds for Callen-Lacy Center
On Saturday, Aug. 24, friends and family gathered for a relaxing ferry boat cruise to Capers Island courtesy of Barrier Island Eco Tours. The group gathered with food and drink and raised $650 for the Callen-Lacy Center for Children located in Moncks Corner.
The home for children provides a secure, protective and nurturing environment for abused, abandoned and neglected children. Since opening in 1998, Callen-Lacy has been home to more than 800 children ranging in ages from newborn to 17 and is open 24 hours a day.
“We were all really pleased to get together and support this worthwhile cause,” Diann Lyons Clark said. “A big thank you to Shane and Morgan Ziegler of Barrier Island Eco Tours for sharing their beautiful boat with us. Our captains Jim and Courtney Hutson are so knowledgeable about the ecosystem and really made our evening enjoyable. I would recommend their tour to everyone. There is so much to see and learn.”
