About Us

The Island Men were formed to help provide the community with a Men’s Group whose members are dedicated to helping support small local charities and numerous children’s educational, civic and athletic activities and programs within our community.  Our organization this year numbers over 230 members who are committed to help improve the quality of life in our community. We host a number of fun and entertaining annual events to raise money that we distribute to the local charities and children’s activities we support. Those events include: The Missed Pleasure Island Pageant, The Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta, The Pleasure Island Mac & Cheese Festival, The Backyard BBQ Cook Off, The Island Men Scholarship Golf Tournament and the now famous Halloween Golf Cart Extravaganza.
Over the years the Island Men have helped paint the Carolina Beach Rescue Station, The Caroline Beach Gazebo as well as provided the labor to build Santa’s Workshop and provide volunteers for Summer Season Fireworks Safety Patrols, The Annual Disabled Fishing Tournaments and Volunteers for the LoTide Run Fundraiser. We annually sponsor a day of fishing and serve up lunch for a number of families who are selected to travel to Pleasure Island for a week of fun and family togetherness hosted by the Little Pink Houses of Hope.

Our donations reach out to organizations like the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Pleasure Island Youth Baseball/Softball, The Carolina Beach Grade School, Martha’s Kitchen, The Katie B. Hines Senior Center, Education Without Walls, Island Time After School Daycare and Summer Camp Programs, Carolina Beach Police Youth Bike Rodeo, The American Legion and Pleasure Island Day of Hope and others based on need.

We have initiated a long-term local student college/trade school scholarship program implemented in 2020.  We awarded thousand dollar scholarships to 5 students in each of the first two years of the program and have been able to increase the award since then. We have awarded $27,000 in scholarships to date and intend to make this a permanent fixture of our community. 

We take pride in putting smiles on the faces of children, residents and visitors with our now famous Annual Island Men Halloween Themed Golf Cart Extravaganza.  We continue to support our local community in other ways by participating in our annual Carolina Beach Christmas Parade and Christmas Flotilla and other family focused community events.

Our Volunteers are recognized annually for the help we provide with weekly fireworks safety patrols throughout the Summer Season. 

And the list goes on as we try to help those less fortunate and also continue to volunteer to help fulfill a fun day on the water or fishing for those with disabilities.

The following charities are budgeted to receive support this year, and others will be added based on funds raised and requests for assistance throughout the year:
