Club Activities Raise Funds For Local Charities

Parrot Heads and Adopt-A-Highway cleanupIn 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club has raised over $10,000 each year for local charities through events like the Beach Bike Poker Run for the ‘Hope for the Warriors Program’ and the Spring Scavenger Hunt , raising funds for the Carteret County Humane Society.

Club members volunteered at several ‘NC Coastal Federation ‘activities, collected for ‘Toys for Tots’, raised funds for a variety of local organizations, and participated in the St. Patrick’s Day Festival and the Emerald Isle Christmas Parade.

Parrot Heads and the Humane SocietyIn 2013, the club won the best float in the parade for the Emerald Isle Parade and in Morehead City. It’s safe to say, we Parrot Heads take our fun seriously! Emerald Isle Parrot Head members also cleaned up the roadside near the Emerald Isle bridge with the Adopt-A-Highway program.
