PICS: Defend Brigantine Beach Fundraiser, Great Success

Sophia’s in Margate.

Over 200 gathered at Sofia’s in Margate this past Saturday to continue the fight against offshore wind turbines.

The ‘Save The Shore’ fundraiser was a superb event that raised plenty of much needed funds and public awareness of DEFEND BRIGANTINE BEACH.

Countless hours of planning, weekly zoom calls and multiple group texts to merge together Brigantine, Ventnor, Margate, Longport and Atlantic City into a rousing successful fundraiser.

Thank you ladies for all your dedication. It shined thru on a cloudy day.

  1. The Philadelphia Magazine has a well reasoned evaluation of the Defend Our Beach movement. I urge everyone to read it for a fair summary of the arguments.
