Myrtle Beach, SC – May 2, 2019 — Grande Dunes launched its 20th Anniversary celebration with a Pops Concert performed by The Long Bay Symphony on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at The Marina Park at Grande Dunes. It was a night to remember with nearly 500 people in attendance and the first 100 guests received a branded Grande Dunes blanket commemorating the event. Guests enjoyed listening to classical, movie and Broadway musical pieces performed by the symphony; delicious food and beverages from local vendors and playing lawn games as the sun set along the Intracoastal Waterway.

Grande Dunes partnered with The Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach for the month of April to help raise money and awareness for their great organization. Representatives from The Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach attended The Long Bay Symphony event to help collect donations. Grande Dunes was honored to present The Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach with a check totaling $7,000 for money raised from The Empty Bowls Fundraising Event organized by Peggy Davis, Lifestyle Director of Grande Dunes and donations collected at The Long Bay Symphony Event. Pantry items were also collected at the events. The Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach provides food to the less fortunate men, women and children of Horry County.

“We are so honored to be able to bring cultural arts to our community and be able to create an awareness for people who are less fortunate than us.” says Margaret LaCalle, President, Grande Dunes and Grande Dunes North. “Residents of Grande Dunes and the City of Myrtle Beach exemplify the true meaning of generosity by supporting all causes that make this community and city a wonderful place to call home.”

The Marina Park at Grande Dunes is a public waterfront music and event lawn overlooking the Grande Dunes Marina and the Intracoastal Waterway. This unique event venue is unlike any other in Myrtle Beach and is the perfect location for public, community and private events all year long.
