MillBridge to Host Water Carnival & School-Supply Drive Event
Proceeds Benefit All Union County Title I Schools
WAXHAW, N.C., (August 7, 2017) – MillBridge, a residential master-planned community by Landeavor, is hosting “Back to School Splash for U(nion)” water carnival and school-supply drive on Aug. 19 from 12–4 p.m. Organizers are encouraging the community to bring a school supply donation from this list; in exchange, children receive tokens to participate in the competitive water festivities. The event is open to the public and admission is free. Tokens can also be purchased separately for 50 cents each. Event proceeds and donations will be given to Union County Title I schools.
“Since MillBridge is in Union County, we try to stay aware of the needs of the local community,” said Kelley Archer, marketing manager at MillBridge. “Union County has 10 Title I schools that are in desperate need of our help. We want to engage the community and our generous residents right before school starts to support these children, and have a splashing good time while doing it,” she continues.
Attendees will have the opportunity to dunk WSOC’s anchorman Scott Wickersham in the dunk tank, participate in the frozen t-shirt and splash competition, relay and boat races, and nosh on bites from the tasty local food trucks. There are also several pools, water slides, and a lazy river to enjoy, for free, while a local DJ mixes his beats.
