Proceeds also benefit the Special Olympics, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and families in need.

"He got out of the convertible and he came down to the beach, I guess it's probably 50 meters or something like that, and as he was approaching the beach he lifted the cup above his head and, of course, there was a big cheer from the crowd," resident Bill Shead told CBC.
