In addition to this summer of music and fun the Madison Beach Hotel is launching the West Wharf Community Alliance, whose mission is to preserve the beauty of the West Wharf area of Madison and insure its future prosperity. The Madison Beach Hotel and owners, Ric and Dawn Duques will match dollar for dollar up to $5,000 contributions to the “West Wharf Sand Pail”, which will be passed out at each event. Monies collected will be donated to the Madison Ambulance Association.
“Each Thursday morning this summer, members of our hotel team, our neighbors, friends and municipal volunteers will meet to comb the beaches and streets of our neighborhoods from the Surf Club to the Beach Club in search of trash, glass, and cigarette butts. If it’s there, we’ll find it,” exclaimed Mathers. “Our West Wharf Community Alliance is just a fun way of engaging our neighbors and friends at giving back to our remarkable community.”
