We were thrilled with the turnout and amount raised for Hope House of Myrtle Beach,” said Margaret LaCalle, LStar Division President – Coastal North. “This is one waterfront party that helps celebrate the Irish spirit in all of us.”

Grande Dunes Marina Park kicked off the St. Patrick’s Day weekend with Shamrock N’ Roll, a waterfront party, on Friday evening, March 16, 2018 which drew approximately 900 attendees. The free event, which included bouncy houses for kids, games for adults and children alike, and lilting sounds of Irish bagpipes, featured a 5k run along the Marina Parkway.

Local favorites, the Paul Grimshaw Band, and Grocery Store Gentlemen, performed for a full three hours. Many listened to the performances on lounge chairs and blankets brought to the new Marina Park – Music and Event Lawn. Picnickers tapped into delicious local fare from food trucks such as Charleston Flats and Tebo’s Dog House.

While over 285 participated in the 5k run, Rob Carroca won first place by crossing the finish line at a solid 16:32.

Shamrock N’ Roll raised $3,675 from the 5K run and onsite donations to benefit Hope House of Myrtle Beach. Hope House exists to provide a healthy environment for Myrtle Beach high school students who are homeless, or facing challenging circumstances, to support their studies toward graduation.

The inaugural event, hosted by Grande Dunes and LStar Ventures, is expected to be held annually. “We were thrilled with the turnout and amount raised for Hope House of Myrtle Beach,” said Margaret LaCalle, LStar Division President – Coastal North. “This is one waterfront party that helps celebrate the Irish spirit in all of us.”
