Jack Lingo News
On Friday, July 23, our very own Carrie Lingo attended Olympic Day at the Rehoboth Beach Boys and Girls Club! As part of the event, the kids competed in a long-jump competition to see how their jumps compared to that of Marquis Dendy, a US Olympian from Middletown, DE. Marquis achieved a 27' 6" Olympic qualifying jump, while our young Boys & Girls Club champion, Devon, won the day's competition with a jump of 13'. As his "gold medal", Devon was awarded a $50 gift card to Dewey Beach Surf Shop!
Dewey Beach Surf Shop is one of our community's beloved local businesses, and when news broke that store owner, Tyler Hudson, suffered a devastating moped accident last Friday evening, our community members immediately rallied together in support. Tyler, also an avid surfer, sustained serious injuries during the crash from which it will take him a long time to recover. Members of Jack Lingo, REALTOR®'S marketing team visited the Surf Shop this week to purchase several gift cards in support of Tyler, which we will donate to our local Boys & Girls Club as well as raffle off to the public via an upcoming "Dewey Beach Trivia" social media campaign—keep an eye on our social pages in the coming days for your chance to win one of these $50 cards!

What does a basketball player do when a pandemic causes games to be cancelled? Get creative!
