'IOP Marina Festival' to help local veterans
The IOP Marina Festival will be held Nov. 4, from 1 to 6 pm at the Isle of Palms Marina, located at 50 41st Ave. The $20 ticket price includes water-themed action such as kayaking, paddle boarding, and jet skiing, as well as live music, a variety of door prizes and plenty of fun for the kids. Veterans and children under 10 get in free. A Veteran Raffle will also be held. Prizes include a shiny new golf cart, a guitar signed by some of country music’s biggest stars, and a weeklong lake getaway to Keowee Vineyards. All proceeds go to the nonprofit IOP Exchange Club for the purpose of building a new dock which will provide water access to our community and for those in need, including many veterans who have suffered physical or psychological trauma while serving in the military. www.iopexchange.org/marinafestival.
