This Weekend on the Island

The Slow Season is the time when Tybeeittes come out for good causes! Here are two events happening this weekend that you don’t want to miss! A special Thank You to Christopher Banks who created the “Blindfolded Buggy Race” to help raise funds for his first book to raise money for Guide Dog Programs ( I believe all of you know Mermaid Cottages sponsors a Guide Dog Puppy each year!) and to Susan Kelleher of SeaSide Sisters Coastal Cottage Shop ( who worked to create the fundraiser this weekend to Save the Tybee Ta- Ta’s. We are very, very lucky to have such creative people using their energy for good causes.


Saturday November 22nd
The First-Ever Blindfolded Buggy Race and Ultimate Corn Hole Championship.


There will be food, drink, games, raffles and the fabulous Train Wrecks will be playing later on at Huc-A-Poos.


All proceeds go toward publication of a children’s book that teaches kids about guide dogs.


Starts at noon this Saturday, November 22
Jaycee Park at Van Horne Avenue, Tybee Island
Teams of two will race a shopping cart around Jaycee Park, one member will sit in the basket acting as the navigator, while the other will push the cart blindfolded. Team with the best time wins first prize.


Cost is $25 to enter the race, but doesn’t cost a thing to watch all the fun!!


To register, go to Huc-a-Poos, 1213 E. U.S. 80, Tybee Island, or call 912 786-5900.
