Despite having to cancel the 2020 Growler Volleyball Tournament due to COVID-19, Growler raises over $56,500 for Children’s Cancer Research.

2020 Growler Gear sales were a huge success.  Thank you Get Stuff Done 4 Kids for paying for the shirt and buff printing.  100% of sales was donated to St Baldricks.

2020 Growler Beach Volleyball Tournament Gear

Though COVID stopped volleyball play this year, it hasn’t slowed down kids’ cancer.  These annoyances of staying protected from COVID and the concerns of getting sick and dying are new to us, but this is the NORMAL life for kids and families with cancer.  We still are supporting our fundraising efforts for St Baldrick’s.   Growler’s strength has always been the networking of 7 swim clubs, 300+ players and the support of hundreds of spectators and sponsors.  Our strength is also our detriment when it comes to dealing with this social virus.  We will be back in 2021.

______________________2019____________________

Growler Beach Volleyball Tournament 2019 logo

The 2019 Growler had a tremendous year raising over $121,500 so far for St. Baldrick’s Foundation. We’ve exceeded the HALF MILLION Dollar mark for total money raised from past years for children’s cancer research.  Donations are still coming in, so who knows where we will finish.  We are currently the 3rd largest SB event in our region (NC/SC/GA) and in the top 5% of all SB events in the US. 

Thank you to all our sponsors and volunteers for making this such a special event.

Hunter Wise & friends at the Growler Beach Volleyball Tournament 2018

Spirit of the Growler Kid–   Growler supported Hunter Wise in 2018.   Hunter just turned 12 in October. Hunters first brain surgery was May 2015 to remove a tumor/cyst.   He had another brain surgery one week later due to complications.  His family learned he has a rare choriocarcinoma and a Germinoma.  When he was released from the hospital he had double vision, Diabetes Insipidus, an inability to regulate his internal thermostat, headaches, nausea, and constant fatigue with the least little bit of activity. Since then Hunter has gone through 2 more brain surgeries, spinal tap and chemotherapy.   He’s a real fighter.   Growler is proud to honor him in 2018 and support his family.   A portion of the Growler proceeds will be given to the family to help support his medical bills.   Read More about Hunter      >>  Hunter’s Story
