Lemonade for Ocean Conservation! - Sailors for the Sea

Lemonade for Ocean Conservation!

 August 8, 2012  | By: Oceana

Eliza and her friend Nicole worked the lemonade stand in the rain to raise money for ocean conservation!

Sailors for the Sea is excited to feature one of our youngest supporters, Eliza Hancock from Marblehead, Mass. An avid sailor at Pleon Yacht Club, Eliza was assigned a school project that required her to learn more about a global issue and to do something to raise awareness for the topic. She focused her energy on Marine Pollution and ran a lemonade stand to raise money for ocean conservation.

By combining her love of sailing and interest in marine pollution she raised $190, which she generously donated to to Sailors for the Sea! We are very honored to be the recipient of Eliza’s hard work, and we are excited to apply this donation to our efforts in educating and engaging the boating community in the worldwide protection of the oceans.

A special thanks goes out to Eliza for being avid young sailor devoted to ocean conservation – keep up the good work!
