We are honored to serve as the official charity of Entercom’s Riptide Music Festival on December 1st, 2nd and 3rd on Fort Lauderdale Beach. We are currently helping to coordinate major on-going long term relief efforts with civic leaders from the Florida Keys and have been helping the Keys community establish the emergency relief effort to directly support the children and families who have been most heavily impacted by hurricane Irma. is now being included as a major part of our co-productions of both the Riptide Music Festival as well as the Coconut Grove Seafood Festival which was held at Miami’s Marine Stadium on October 21st & 22nd. Entercom’s amazing radio station network and on-air personalities have already begun to be announce these relief efforts with live coverage from the Keys and all of this will continue on an ongoing basis as a primary focus of all of our activities on our “Road to Riptide”. Ongoing and updated information about how you can help with all of the relief initiatives will continue to be posted here as well as broadcast on an ongoing basis on 104.3 The Shark, 102.7 The Beach and 101.5 Lite FM and 790 The Ticket. To make a donation or volunteer please visit
