Myrtle Beach Chicora Rotary started Waves of the Future-Rotary’s Celebration of Horry County Schools six years ago to serve as an annual fundraiser and to give back to Horry County Schools. But Waves has done so much more than that! Since 2013, we have been able to watch over 3,000 students perform on one of the best theaters in the country, The Carolina Opry. We have been able to donate over $65,000 to Horry County Schools Fine Arts Programs. We have been able to raise an additional $90,000 to fund projects such as Dictionary Project, Project Happy, Freedom Readers, Street Reach and Water Sanitation Projects in Peru. Waves of the Future’s impact goes beyond Horry County, because of its success, Myrtle Beach Chicora Rotary has been able to provide clean water and sanitation for generations to come in Peru.
This year Waves sold out The Carolina Opry with 1,200 tickets and we donated $15,177.00 to Horry County Schools!
