Join us in the 3rd annual Ride the Tide event!  We had so much fun last year and we can't wait the fun to start again!  This year's proceeds will be given to the Waccamaw Riverkeeper of Winyah Rivers Foundation!  The Waccamaw Riverkeeper organization implements education and advocacy in the amazing action of maintaining and upkeep needed for the rivers within our communities!  Additionally, the mission of Winyah Rivers Foundation is to protect, preserve, monitor and revitalize the health of the lands and waters of the greater Winyah Bay watershed.  GIFT is honored to be partnered with this amazing organization this year!

On Saturday, September 16th please join together with family, friends, and your community for our 2017 Ride The Tide event, a fun-filled four mile float down the Waccamaw River.  The "ride" will begin at the Litchfield Plantation Marina and will end at Hagley Landing on Hagley Drive in Pawleys Island, Sc.  Registration begins at 9:00am, Water blast off 10:00-11:00am! Float with us on any non-motorized vehicle such as a tube, kayak, canoe, rent one from us or MAKE YOUR OWN FLOAT!  This event is open to any non-motorized floatation device.  Bring your kayaks, inner-tubes, canoes, or get creative and build your own raft! All participants will be required to wear a life jacket for the event.  

To keep the fun going, GIFT will be hosting an ALL YOU CAN EAT LOW COUNTRY boil to include shrimp, mussels, clams, smoked sausage, corn, potatoes and beverages.  Live band entertainment featuring Stan Gregory, will kick off this party  at 3:00pm and Perlino band to follow from 5:30-9:30pm.
