New Jersey tour raises money for Coast Guard families

The Nature Center of Cape May, N.J., is holding a kayak tour June 20 in and around Cape May Harbor to raise money for Paddle for a Purpose.

The Nature Center of Cape May, N.J., is holding a two-hour guided kayak tour June 20 in and around Cape May Harbor, as well as an after-party, to raise money for Paddle for a Purpose.

Paddle for a Purpose raises money for the Nature Center’s Good Neighbor Fund, which, in turn, provides scholarships for Coast Guard-dependent children so they can attend summer programs at the center.

New Jersey Audubon’s Nature Center of Cape May is literally surrounded by Coast Guard housing, but the relationship is far more than geographic because the center has served as a second home to generations of Coast Guardsmen and their families.

“The Good Neighbor Fund is our way of giving back to our Coast Guard friends,” sanctuary director Gretchen Whitman said in a statement.

The tour starts at 1 p.m.

Aqua Trails Kayak Tours and Sales, located on site at the Nature Center, will provide guides and kayaks, if needed. The C-View Inn will host the after-party, which will start when the paddling is completed, or about 3 p.m.

Tito’s Handmade Vodka is sponsoring the event.
