Barbara Cresse, organizer of Burn the Bird Turkey Trot, presented a check for $1500 to Chief Tony Cavalier of the North Wildwood Beach Patrol. The check represents proceeds from the Burn the Bird event, which is held every year on Thanksgiving weekend. The Beach Patrol will use the proceeds to purchase equipment for the Junior Lifeguard program, which teaches water safety to children. Vinny DiRitis, a lifeguard for the NWBP, was the first place male overall in the race this past year. Thank you Barbara Cresse and the South Jersey Triathlon Club for your generosity and continued support of the NWBP.
