  • Charleston-North Charleston, SC (1888PressRelease) July 13, 2011 - Whitney Holzer, Co-Owner of Palmetto Moon, announced today that the South Carolina retail chain along with AFTCO and world-renowned marine life artist Guy Harvey is donating $15,000 to two local habitat conservation non-profit organizations. Palmetto Moon generated proceeds from sales of its exclusive Guy Harvey t-shirts to support the Coastal Conservation Association of South Carolina (CCA SC) and the Sea Turtle Rescue Program at the South Carolina Aquarium. CCA SC, which is dedicated to marine habitat improvement in South Carolina, will use $12,000 to purchase new trailers for its Topwater Action Campaign (TWA).

    The fundraising effort began May 1 and ended June 30, which coincided with the introduction of the exclusive Palmetto Moon Guy Harvey t-shirt that comes in eight different colors and several styles. All seven Palmetto Moon locations in greater Charleston, Florence, Myrtle Beach and Bluffton, S.C. raised funds by selling the shirts, which are still available in all stores. In June, the Guy Harvey t-shirts were featured on Lowcountry Live with representatives from CCA SC and the Sea Turtle Rescue Program.

    "Palmetto Moon customers care deeply about their state and its well-being, so we knew giving back to organizations that work to improve South Carolina habitats would be well-received in our stores. The TWA and Sea Turtle Rescue Program have such a positive impact on our local conservation, and we're thrilled our customers chose to help these fundraising efforts in such an enormous way," said Holzer. "Guy Harvey is not only a prominent, beloved brand in all our stores and across the state, but he himself is an avid ocean conservationist. Palmetto Moon is all about South Carolina, so teaming up with Guy and AFTCO to give back to our local habitats was a perfect partnership."

    The check presentation ceremony will take place Saturday, August 6 at the Summerville, S.C. Palmetto Moon location. Following the ceremony, Guy Harvey himself will sign autographs at the store from 2-4 p.m.
