Clowning Around for a Cause
On Thursday May 24, 2018 Prince Resort raised money for Red Nose Day. Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh.
According to Comic Relief USA, "Every year, thousands across America buy Red Noses at Walgreens and go Nose to Nose to raise awareness and funds to help children in need. Then, in late May, the nation comes together to wear our Red Noses and tune into NBC for a special night of prime-time programming celebrating Red Nose Day."
Prince employees paid to wear casual to work on Red Nose Day. Proceeds raised during the dress down day were donated to the Red Nose Day Campaign. Prince Resort raised $60 to donate to the cause.

Fun in the Sun
There is never a lack of fun things to see and do in the Myrtle Beach area. Below are some tips to help you have the best Myrtle Beach vacation possible!
Seashell Hunting Tips
Plan your search around the tides, and start searching during the day's first low tide where the wet and dry sand meet.
If you are trying to catch large shells the water's edge is ideal because these shells are often too heavy for the tide to bring in.Try getting to the beach immediately after a storm, you will increase your chances of spotting an unbroken shell the storm has kicked up.
Never take a live shell, sea urchin or sand dollar from the beach. Dead sand dollars are white and smooth without any hair, while live ones are brown and covered with short hairs. Many other shells, including whelks and the lettered olive, may have live inhabitants hiding inside. If you're in doubt, don't take the shell!
