Summer Waves Water Park to offer discount admission Sept. 22

JEKYLL ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

On Sept. 22, Summer Waves Water Park on Jekyll Island will be offering discount admission with a portion of all proceeds being donated to the United Way of Coastal Georgia. Admission prices will be reduced to $12 per person, with $2 of the entry fee being donated to the United Way of Coastal Georgia to support the Live United Giving Campaign. Sept. 22 will be the final day that Summer Waves is open in 2012.

Steve Sharpe, General Manager of Summer Waves, say the event will end of the summer season on an encouraging note.

"We're very excited to work on such a major fundraising day with United Way," Sharpe said in a press release. "Every time we have worked with United Way in the past, the results have been outstanding. This day of support will be above and beyond. We are hoping to make this an annual event to support all the great work United Way does for our coastal Georgia community."

According to Missy Neu, Executive Director of the United Way of Coastal Georgia, the partnership with Jekyll Island to create more awareness about the United Way is a natural move.

"Jekyll Island continues to grow and be a backbone of support for our community, much the same way the United Way works to build a stronger, healthier Golden Isles," Neu said in a press release. "This idea is a creative way for us to support each other and our joint missions. It is a wonderful opportunity to help your community doing something fun you would want to do anyway."
