About Us

The group formed to help provide the community with a Men’s Group whose members are dedicated to helping small local charities and working on community projects to improve the quality of life in our community. We host a number of annual events to raise money for local charities and to support the men and women who have served and are serving our country around the world. Those events include The Missed Pleasure Island Pageant, The Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta and new this year The Pleasure Island Mac & Cheese Festival.

We also provide volunteer resources to a wide range of community support groups including The Island of Lights, The Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce, Step-Up-For-Soldiers and The Federal Point Help Center.

Over the years the Island Men have help 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 Fund-Raiser. 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, Step Up For Soldiers, Carolina Beach Police Youth Bike Rodeo, Pleasure Island Fire Relief Fund, Pleasure Island Day of Hope and others based on our fund raising efforts.

We have identified/developed a long-term giving strategy to ensure that The Island Men will have the funds to give back to our community and contribute to the overall quality of life on our Island for the future. 

We have initiated a long-term scholarship program that has been implemented in 2020.  We will be awarding scholarships to 5 individuals each year from our community to assist in their educational efforts. 

We have put together a team of members to improve our social media presence, allowing us to more effectively communicate on the internet.

We put smiles on the faces of 1000’s of kids, residents and visitors with our excellent entries with our Float in the Christmas Parade, and our boat in the Christmas Flotilla.

We helped keep 1000’s of residents and visitors safe during our weekly fireworks.  The Island Men team worked safety patrol each week throughout the Tourist Season. 

Successful fund raisers throughout 2019, have allowed us to surpass our fund raising budget. This gave us the opportunity to give even more back to our community including:

  • Computer learning system to the Carolina Beach Elementary School.
  • Food to the Help Center to help feed 125 families and neighbors on the Island for the Holidays.  
  • Donation to Ocean Cure as well as our volunteers who swept the Beach Access Mats each Wednesday nights at the Boardwalk.
  • $7000 + raised from The Island Men Hosting the Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Festival and Regatta, allowing a large donation to be made to Step Up for Soldiers.
  • Flags Over Pleasure Island – over 250 customers and over 20 volunteers to set our flags each designated Holiday.
  • And many more opportunities and donations made.
