Shamrock Splash

Join the YES Young Donors Committee for a Shamrock Splash with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay to benefit YES youth on Sunday, March 6 at noon on M Street Beach in South Boston!
Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is participating in the 2016 Shamrock Splash to raise funds to support Boston youth! Last year, Team YES raised over $5,000 to support YES kids and give them the opportunity to experience Stand-Up Paddleboarding on Carson Beach in South Boston. Funds raised through the 2015 Splash enabled 72 children to experience this exciting sport and introduced them to Boston Harbor and its beaches.
Join Team YES for the 2016 Shamrock Splash and support Boston youth! Over $5k was raised by Team YES last year; our goal is to surpass that amount and give even more youth opportunities to be active and explore Boston’s beaches with YES this summer!
Please note: Splashers must be 21+ and raise a minimum of $250 to participate
$20 registration includes:
  • Harpoon Beer & Burgers
  • A Fun Post-Splash Party
