A letter from your 2020 Golf Cart Fundraiser Committee:
Hello ODSC, we hope this finds you and your family doing well.
Monica Palmieri, Lori Setzer, John Setzer, and Jim Palmieri are extremely pleased to report that we have sold all of our tickets for the 3rd year in a row. That is correct; in 2018 we sold 3,000 tickets. In 2019 we sold 3,200. In 2020, despite having all of our scheduled events cancelled, all 3,500 tickets have been sold. That’s a total of $17,500 deposited for 2020. And, if you are keeping score, that’s $48,500 for three years.
A great big thank you to Monica Powell. Without her incredible communication, this would not have been possible. Thank you to our President, Billy Powell, for all of his support. This year we had to create our own events and Billy showed up at every single event. We really appreciated his support. Thank you to all of our volunteers who gave up their time to help sell tickets.
On the day of the drawing, with 500 tickets still to sell, we started selling at Grahams’s at 10:00am and then moved to Fat Harold’s parking lot at 3:00pm. At 5:30pm, as members were arriving for the drawing, many members who had volunteered in the past 3 years, got caught up in the selling frenzy as we closed in on ticket #3,500 and they started selling tickets with us. Finally, thank you to all of our members who showed up in droves on September 26th to purchase tickets and stayed for the drawing.
Congratulations to our 2020 golf cart winner Felix Figueroa. Felix is a member of the ODSC and purchased ticket #0800 way back in February.
Once again, thank you to everyone.

The ODSC Dance Team was asked to give a brief history and to demonstrate the Shag Dance at the North Myrtle Beach Museum on September 08, 2020 at 9:30am. by Cathy Altman, Executive Director.
With the restrictions and safety precautions due to Covid-19 it was recommended that only two members of the dance team provide the information being requested. All safety measures were taken. Each person that was a part of the event wore a mask, practiced social distancing and there was plenty of hand sanitizer made available.
The group represented the NMB Chamber’s Marketing Agency. Our local President and CEO of the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce Cheryl Kilday was accompanied by three young ladies from the Miles Partnership, the Creative and Marketing company for the North Myrtle Beach Chamber out of Florida.
Linda Campbell gave a 15-minute talk on the history of the Shag Dance and the impact that it has on our community.
Following her talk, we demonstrated the Shag Dance. Then we taught the group the basic steps. The group picked up the steps very easily and were very enthusiastic in wanting to learn.
After the lessons, we were asked if we could go to Florida and teach the Shag Dance in their community. Well….
I would also like to recognize the NMB Museum and the Executive Director, Cathy Altman. She has always asked the ODSC Dance Team to come to the Museum and promote and preserve the Shag. If you have not been to the Museum, take the time to visit. There is a wealth of information there. It’s free and worth the trip.
Thank you, Cathy, for the invitation and thank you for keeping the Shag alive.
Thanks to Linda Campbell and Lou Martino for taking the time to take part in this event.
