The 2021 Cruise-For-A-Cause Golf Cart Parade and Fundraiser benefitting The National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation will take place at Lake Waccamaw Sunday (May 30)

The inaugural cruise took place during the first Memorial Day weekend after the start of pandemic, as a way to bring some cheer to the residents of Premier Living. Like all extended care facilities, the nursing home was quarantined early in the pandemic, and visitors were not allowed. While the cruisers couldn’t visit the nursing home proper, they drove through the parking lot as a sign of support for both residents and the workers at the home.

Registration and parade line-up begins at 2 p.m., and the parade will start at 3 p.m. The starting point will be on Columbia Avenue near Brinkley Park. The parade’s planned route will be from Lakeshore Drive, to Premier Living and Rehab Center, down Canal Cove Road, and will end at One-Stop Convenience Store on Waccamaw Shores where a live band will be waiting. 

There will be a $5 entry fee for each golf cart, and a contest for best decorated golf cart. The winner will receive $100. Sponsors are also asking for canned food and dry goods donations to support the local food ministry. 

Commemorative t-shirts can be ordered right now for $20 by contacting Jessica Andrews at (910) 625-5053. All t-shirt orders must be paid in advance before the event. 

Only golf carts will be allowed to travel in the parade. Sponsors ask that there be no ATVs or UTVs at the event.
