2018 Harpoon Shamrock Splash

The 7th annual Harpoon Shamrock Splash to benefit Save the Harbor/Save the Bay will be held on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at the BCYF Curley Community Center at M Street Beach in South Boston. With your help this year we will raise more than $50,000 to support free beach events and programs on the region’s public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket!

Follow this link to find out more about the free Better Beaches programs and events we supported in 2017.

For just $25, you can enjoy refreshing Harpoon beer, tasty treats, a terrific beach party and the warm feeling you get when you give back to your community. You will also have a chance to win round trip flights from JetBlue, terrific swag from Harpoon and other great prizes for best costume and biggest fundraiser.

The Harpoon Shamrock Splash to benefit Save the Harbor/Save the Bay began in 2011 in partnership with Harpoon Brewery and JetBlue as a fundraiser for beach lovers to plunge into cold water and raise money for their beaches.

In 2017, the Harpoon Shamrock Splash raised more than $55,000 to support nearly 100 free concerts, beach festivals, sand raking competitions, and circus performances in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull.

So help us crush last year's record and raise $60,000 to support free events and programs on the region's public beaches this year.

Register online before the event at www.shamrocksplash.org for just $20, or register on the day of for $25. Registration includes a beer, a burger, a Harpoon Koozie, and the chance to win round-trip flights on JetBlue for best costume and biggest fundraiser.*

Start a team, invite your friends to join you, and help us make a big splash on the beach in 2018.
