Event Overview

Join us for the 17th annual Carly’s Crossing! We want all swimming enthusiasts to dive in for our half-mile and mile open-water challenges, setting off from the sandy shores of Sunset Bay Beach Club.

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!
