How do we give back? How do we make a positive impact? How can we help?
Those were the questions we asked ourselves at Broadway at the Beach when planning this year's annual Summer Nights entertainment series. Sure, we love seeing all your memories made while interacting with stilt-walkers strolling along The Avenue, singing along to your favorite tunes with singers on the Heroes Harbor stage or dancing your cares away with the entire family in Center Court… but how can we enhance your experience and at the same time make a positive impact here in our community?
That's when it hit us… who better to honor and give back to than the men and women of our Armed Forces?
So now let us introduce Great American Summer Nights at Broadway at the Beach!
Beginning June 1st through September 1st, Broadway at the Beach will partner with Blue Star Mothers, a congressionally-chartered non-profit, non-partisan, and non-sectarian group of mothers who have children serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, including veterans. Their mission is to support one another, support our men and women in uniform, and promote patriotism in their community. Broadway at the Beach supports Blue Star Mothers and their mission and will be donating all the change collected in our fountains throughout the summer.
In addition, you can stop by our Guest Services Center and for a one dollar donation you'll receive a red, white and blue Broadway Great American Summer Nights souvenir bracelet. While there, feel free to write a note of thanks or have the kids create a card or draw a picture at the Mail for our Military table and then drop it in the mailbox. Each note, card and picture will be given to Blue Star Mothers for inclusion in the many care packages they put together for our troops.
It's a quick stop and a great way to put a smile on a US Servicemen or woman across the world!
Of course, you can find a complete calendar of nightly entertainment here.
So as the temperatures rise, the school days dwindle and you're making your Myrtle Beach plans, we hope you plan on joining us all summer long and give back to our heroes during Great American Summer Nights at Broadway at the Beach!
