Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project comes to DC this Weekend
This summer, Barefoot Wine and the Surfrider Foundation (a national nonprofit committed to protecting the world’s oceans, waves and beaches) are traveling coast to coast cleaning up America’s beaches with the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project. Now in its third year, the project encourages local residents to come out, clean their beach and help keep it “barefoot-friendly.” Volunteers are rewarded with a celebration featuring Barefoot Wine, music and beach-inspired food.
Barefoot will be in DC Saturday, July 18, 2009 from 10 a.m. to noon, completing a river cleanup at Hains Point (East Potomac Park). Afterward, volunteers can meet up from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hard Rock Café for a celebration of their efforts. Join them this weekend for this unique volunteering opportunity - maybe you'll even get a little bubbly afterwards.
