After competing with 9 other beaches in the Barefoot Wines "Beach Rescue Vote," the Cape Fear Chapter won the opportunity to team up with Barefoot Wines, Luscious Jackson singer Jill Cuniff, and Sophia Bush from the television show "One Tree Hill" in Wrightsville Beach this past weekend. This beach rescue project was the 6th of 7 nationwide events.
More than 100 volunteers showed up to the beach clean up and after party @ Tower 7 Baja. Other chapter activists from Volusia/Flagler and Charleston Chapters were able to participate since they were in town for the East Coast Wahine Championships.
The Cape Fear chapter's current campaigns include Saving Beach Access 33 and Stoping the Discharge of Sewage into their rivers.
