On May 21st The Beaufort Sea Island Chums supported Walgreens ‘Red Nose Day’ fundraiser by purchasing Red Noses for each of its members and making individual monetary donations by phone and online. This was a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. People across the country came together to have fun and raise funds and awareness for those less fortunate. The day’s events culminated in a three-hour entertainment TV special on NBC featuring the country’s favorite comedians, musicians and Hollywood stars.
