And The First Winner Is...

Tiffany Found Her Marble and So Can You!

In September Save the Harbor selected our first JetBlue ticket winner in our "Simply Marble-ous" Treasure Hunt -Tiffany Wallace-Buckley!! She found her blue marble on Carson Beach during the South Boston Neighborhood House Family Fun Night with her seven year old daughter, who loves to look for sea shells, beach glass, and other treasures along the shore!

"We love to go to the beach in South Boston and to the Boston Harbor Islands. Thanks to Save the Harbor and the South Boston Neighborhood House for making Boston a great place for kids and families like mine."

Tiffany will be using her round trip JetBlue ticket to visit their family in Texas! 

Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay has partnered with JetBlue Airways again this year for the 3rd Annual "Simply Marble-ous" Treasure Hunt- and it's still going on! If you find a cobalt blue marble on your favorite beach from Nahant to Nantasket by October 31st, just take a photo of yourself with your marble and post it on Save the Harbor's facebook page or e-mail it to

Please include your name, contact information, and which beach you found your marble on. You could win a round-trip ticket from JetBlue Airways to any domestic destination they serve from Boston's Logan Airport! 

“The Simply Marble-ous Treasure Hunt is a favorite among JetBlue’s more than 2,500 crewmembers in Boston, many of whom volunteer locally for a variety of worthy causes including Save The Harbor/Save The Bay” said Ronda Ivy McLeod, Manager of Regional Marketing, Northeast at JetBlue Airways. “The treasure hunt exemplifies our fun value, while also highlighting our commitment to the city of Boston.”

Bruce Berman, Director of Communications at Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay said, “At Save the Harbor we’re always looking for ways to get people to take a fresh look at the Boston Harbor. JetBlue Airways’ support helps to make that possible. One of the reasons this contest is such a success is because JetBlue is such a great partner. Fun is one of their core values and you can see that in the way they treat their community partners, employees and customers.” 

The "Simply Marble-ous" Treasure Hunt began in 2012 on the beaches of South Boston with a beach clean up sponsored by JetBlue in partnership with the Massachusetts DCR. In just a few short hours, more than 100 people did 5 weeks worth of work cleaning up the beaches. At the end of the day, the participants released their marbles into the water for Boston beach-goers to find.

We will be picking one more winner on Halloween following our last cruise to the Boston Harbor Islands on October 25th to celebrate the end of the season! There are still plenty of marbles to be found around the beaches from Nahant to Nantasket so be sure to keep your eye out while you take your crisp fall walks along beautiful Boston Harbor!
