From the awards breakfast pamphlet:

On New Years Day 2003, Brian led a group of friends on the beach of Surf City to start the year with a plunge into the Atlantic Ocean. Over a decade later, the New Years Day Dolphin Dip at Surf City is now America’s biggest New Year’s Day Swim Event. From a group of 20 to last year’s crowd of over 5,000 participants, the event has brought the community together while raising funds for various organizations.

Brian has a big heart for giving and inspires others to do the same. There is no cost to participate in the event, but it raises about $10,000 every year. Brain selects a different nonprofit to honor each year, trying to spread it around because there are “so many wonderful charities”. In the past, funds have supported Lower Cape Fear Hospice, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, and Hope for the Warriors.

With a passion for giving and helping, Brian Moxey advocates for many local organizations, including United Way of the Cape Fear Area and for the YMCA as a PPD Beach 2 Battleship Triathlon director. This year, Brian and his family were honored by the Karen Beasley Turtle Hospital when they named a rescued cold-stunned turtle Moxey. Moxey was released this June with much fanfare. Now the fanfare should be in honor of all the many other philanthropic efforts by our energetic friend Brian.

Thanks to all the community leaders, organizations and individuals who continue to make a difference in our community! You are all very much appreciated, and congratulations to all the nominees!
