Thunder By The Beach!!!

Our third event is coming up! The event schedule has been posted on the website and on Facebook. Please note, the gates at GBM will not open until Friday morning.


Once again we are hosting the party in the pit on the Friday evening. Everyone is invited (and encouraged) to attend. The tent will be set-up again and the band is returning! We will be giving away prizes (and much more)! We are looking for donations to help cover the cost of the tent and band. The total cost of the party is approx. $5,000. Any sponsorship money/donations would be greatly appreciated. Please email if you are able to make a contribution.
