COVID-19 Whales for Wishes Update
Dear Whales for Wishes Family,
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the current state of North Carolina’s reopening measures, we made the difficult choice to cancel the Whales for Wishes 2020 bottle share. We exhausted all options and waited as long as possible to make this decision. However, given the nature of the event, we simply could not guarantee the safety of event-goers, which is our top concern.
We know this sucks, however, there is some good news. Even without the 2020 bottle share, together we raised over $115,000 for Make-A-Wish – more than double what we raised in 2019. We’re also getting a head start on planning next year’s bottle share.
For those who purchased tickets, you have three options:
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all so much for your ongoing support of Whales for Wishes. It means more than ever right now to support local nonprofits, especially the likes of Make-A-Wish that have such a strong positive impact on our community. Stay safe, and take care of each other.
