Harpoon Shamrock Splash 2017!

What better way to kick off another year of protecting, restoring, and sharing Boston Harbor than a splash into the water at the nation's cleanest urban beach and some cold Harpoon beers? 

We are delighted to announce that the Harpoon Shamrock Splash to benefit Save the Harbor/Save the Bay will be held on Sunday, March 5th at the BCYF Curley Community Center in South Boston!

Last year, the Harpoon Shamrock Splash raised more than $40,000 to support free concerts and beach festivals, sand sculpting competitions and youth programs on the region's public beaches in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull.

Your $20 registration for the Splash includes beer, a burger, a Harpoon koozie, and a chance to win a round-trip JetBlue ticket. When you start a team and raise $100, $250, or $500 or more dollars, you'll get some cool Harpoon swag like t-shirts and hoodies, and a greater chance of winning another round-trip JetBlue flight. You can register HERE. 

This year's Splash will be better than ever, with live music, cold beer, and tasty treats from B.Good. It is also the most important Splash we have ever put on. 

In 2015 and 2016, with the support of the Metropolitan Beaches Commission, the Legislature and both the Patrick and Baker Administrations, the Department of Conservation and Recreation invested funds to support our Better Beaches Program of free events and programs on the region's public beaches. 

Recent budget cuts make state funding for this program uncertain this year, so your participation and support in the Splash is more important than ever before.

Save the Harbor is committed to running a Better Beaches Program in 2017 regardless of these cuts, which is why we we're counting on the fundraising efforts of our friends who love their beach as much as they love Harpoon beer. Check out the video of the Splash here to get you excited about starting your Splash team NOW! 

We can't wait to see you in the water at M Street Beach in South Boston on March 5th!
