…The Cause

Carly’s Crossing Beach Bash benefits Carly’s Club at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Event Overview

After 13 years, Carly’s Crossing is thrilled to announce some exciting event changes to its traditional format. Don’t worry, if you’re a swimming enthusiast, we still have an open-water swim challenge for you. Participants in our swim challenge will “dive in” at Sunset Bay Beach Club to kick-start our beach day.

After the swimmers have come back to shore, swimmers and non-swimmers alike are welcome to set up their beach gear and start our beachfront party full of sun, sand, games, sports, food, live music and fun.

This family-friendly beach bash will have plenty of games and activities for kids of all ages…no swimming skills required! Plus, there are plenty of chances to win cool prizes – whether you’re playing tug-of-war, participating in our sandcastle building contest or opting to test your luck at our fantastic basket raffle.

Don’t miss the “fun in the sun” for a great cause!
