The event is part of a partnership between Barefoot Wines and the Alliance's Adopt-a-Beach Program to help clean up Great Lakes beaches and shorelines and offer a special celebration to recognize volunteers' efforts. In 2011, more than 8,000 Adopt-a-Beach volunteers removed 32,668 pounds of trash at 254 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin. This cleanup is part of a series of events this summer with Barefoot Wine and the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
