So many of you have asked, "What can we do to help out?"

I First, we want to make this the biggest Holiday Boat Parade that Lake Lanier has ever seen 

Changes this year!

 The biggest thing is raising money for these two great organizations. To do that, we need more boats to participate so that we can raise more money. So this year, we are asking for each Boat Captain to get as many Sponsors for their boats as they can. 


How can we raise money?

 We are changing things up a bit this year" according to Pickering. "We are asking that each Boat Captain to raise money based on the number of bulbs that they put on their boats. Then ask your friends, neighbors and co-workers to Sponsor your boat.
For example:
For every bulb on your boat, ask for 10 cents per bulb to be pledged to support the charities. So if you have 2000 bulbs on your boat, that would be a $200 pledge from each Sponsor that you get - which would be $100 for each organization. 

Margaritaville on Lake Lanier

 Then invite them to come down to Margaritaville to watch the boats come into the Marina and join in on the fun! There will be great food and music to enjoy - and of course Santa will be there! We will have a raffle with all kinds of lake related products, services and gift certificates to restaurants 

Decorated Boats

 We look forward to seeing some great decorated boats, costumes and holiday spirit on the lake this year" according to Pickering. "This event gets better and better because of all the wonderful people who participate each year. We are excited to see returning boats and new participants this year for the 2019 Lake Lanier Holiday Boat Parade on December 14th

The Georgia Sheriff's Youth Homes

 

Over 60 years ago, Sheriffs of Georgia founded the Georgia Sheriffs’ Youth Homes, a residential care program, to help children who have been abandoned, neglected and abused.

When children come to Youth Homes, they are placed in a family setting and are provided not just the basics of food, shelter, and clothing, but a safe, loving, nurturing environment in which to rebuild their lives and to prepare for a brighter future.

Hall County Dive Team

The Hall County Sheriff's Office Underwater Search and Rescue Unit, generally referred to as the "Dive Team," was first formed on March 1, 1979. As such, it is the oldest paid law enforcement dive team in the state of Georgia. Consisting of 11 deputies, the team responds primarily to calls for service on Lake Sydney Lanier and smaller bodies of water within Hall County. However, the teams' services are frequently requested by agencies all across the Northeast Georgia region.
