Old News: But SPI Can Still Use Your Vote

Your Vote is Needed
to Make
South Padre Island
Barefoot Friendly

This is old news to most of you, but the voting deadline is in July so I thought a little reminder couldn't hurt. To remind myself to vote each day, I have put a link to the site on my toolbar. South Padre Island will appreciate all the support we can get, so please vote for our beach daily!!

We're excited to announce our participation in this year's Surfrider Foundation Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project. The Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project was launched in 2007 to help raise awareness and support for the Surfrider Foundation and its efforts to protect and preserve our world's oceans, waves and beaches through a series of beach restoration events.

This summer, the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project will be traveling coast to coast, from Montauk, NY, to Austin, TX, San Francisco, CA, and one city to be voted on by the public. We're excited to let you know that South Padre Island was chosen as a voting city!

We're inviting members, friends, family, coworkers and other people the age of 21+ to vote daily for South Padre Island at . The winning location will receive funds to help with campaign work and other programs and host a beach cleanup and celebration event on Saturday, August 23, 2008.

As special thanks to volunteers, singer-songwriter Tristan Prettyman, after joining volunteers on the beach, will perform live at the special celebration. Guests will also enjoy beach-inspired bites and Barefoot Wine and Bubbly.

Voting ends July 15, so be sure to cast your vote at
